Giorgia Meloni, the 30-year-old who conquered Italy with her triptych "God, fatherland, family"


Figure of the extreme right in Italy, leader of the Fratelli d'Italia party, she has just won the legislative elections held on the night of Sunday September 25. His credo: a national-conservative shift.

The chorus of

Ma il cielo è semper più blu

, a summer hit from the 70s, resounded last night in Italy to sing the victory of the post-fascist party, Fratelli d'Italia.

On the night of September 25, its leader Giorgia Meloni won the legislative elections hands down with more than 26% of the vote, confirming the polls which declared her the favourite.

A result allowing his political family to obtain the majority of seats in Parliament, the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate.

And which brings her a little closer to the post of Prime Minister, hitherto occupied by the resigning Mario Draghi.

“We will not betray your trust.

We are ready to lift Italy,” she said on her Instagram account, which has 1.1 million subscribers.

The equal of men

This victory, Giorgia Meloni dream since adolescence.

Born to a right-wing mother and a communist militant father, who abandoned her to live in the Canary Islands when she was only 3 years old, Giorgia Meloni forged an iron personality and very early on intended to "become the equal of men for everything, from karting to politics”.

At 15, she took on odd jobs as a waitress and babysitter, but at the same time fed her diplomatic appetite, chaining party memberships.

At the same age, she joined the youth organization of the Italian Social Movement (MSI), created by supporters of Benito Mussolini.

Then, enters as head of student action in the National Alliance (AN).

At the age of 19, she obtained a diploma in journalism and worked for a time for the daily newspaper of her party,

Il Secolo d'Italia.

Precocious and determined, this blond head of 1.63 meters then advances by leaps and bounds on the political chessboard.

At 21, she was elected city councilor in Rome, then at 29, became a deputy and vice-president of the Chamber, before being appointed Minister of Youth in the conservative government of Silvio Berlusconi.

The one who is easily compared to Marine Le Pen speaks without complex of her convictions, conservative and traditionalist.

Interviewed in 1996 by France 3, she was only 21 and did not hesitate to praise the dictator Mussolini, calling him a "good politician" who "did everything for Italy".

Her ambition pushed her, in 2012, to found her own party, Brothers of Italy (Fratelli d'Italia), with former members of the National Alliance.

Two years later, she became its president.

The motto of this new opposition movement to power can be summed up in three simple words: “God, fatherland, family”.

But the strength of Giorgia Meloni is due to her status as a woman, which she plays to support her anti-progressive convictions.

Some remember his fervent speech at a meeting in the fall of 2019: "I am Giorgia, I am a woman, I am a mother, I am Italian, I am a Christian and you will not take that away from me. not !".

An anaphora still anchored in Italian heads, having participated in establishing its stature in its country.

“In general, she conceives a role for women very close to that promoted and practiced in the 1920s, centered on the family and procreation”, thus explained in a tribune the Italian newspaper

La Repubblica.

“Mom, good luck!”

Thus, Giorgia Meloni does not hesitate to wear very feminine outfits and to expose herself on social networks with her family.

In cohabitation with a television journalist, she is the mother of a little girl, born in 2016. “Thank you for your patience.

Despite your 6 years, you understood, and supported my many absences.

Thank you for the way you run to me when I come home, and when you say "Mom, good luck!".

All is for you.

I love you”, she wrote recently under a photo showing her with her child.

Participating in the demonization of her party, the far-right leader nevertheless remains formally opposed to marriage for all and adoption for homosexuals.

In 2019, she had estimated with the local press that it was a whim on the part of gay couples, and compared these same couples wishing to adopt to “ogres who steal children to eat them”.

Thus, and added to his desire to close the borders to fight against the Islamization of his country, many are already worried about his victory.

This Sunday, September 25, Giorgia Meloni then wanted to calm things down.

"We will govern for all Italians," she promised.

We will do it with the aim of uniting the people”... but according to his vision of Italy.
