Count Grillo Di Maio Lapresse
An hour of face to face in Giuseppe Conte’s Roman home, from 9:30 to 10:30. Luigi Di Maio, committed until yesterday in international commitments in his role as Foreign Minister of the Draghi government, takes the field trying the last, extreme, mediation between Beppe Grillo and the former Prime Minister. The holder of the Farnesina has not yet expressed himself publicly after the showdown between Conte and the guarantor of the Movement and is trying to re-tie the threads of dialogue.
Yesterday’s video by Grillo is read by multiple sources as an opening to the former premier with different tones than those of the very hard post two days ago. The meetings of the parliamentary groups, both the Chamber and the Senate, have unequivocally highlighted how the split is imminent in the event that a compromise is not reached. Di Maio is definitely the big 5 star who has the most to lose in the event of a split. If he is with Grillo, he risks becoming a minister given the hypothesis of leaving the executive and perhaps even a seat in Parliament in the next elections if there were not an exception to the bond of the double mandate.
But if Di Maio stays with the former prime minister, he loses that role as a point of reference in the pentastellated groups and in fact puts himself in the shadow of Conte. This is why, at the push of other important big names such as Stefano Patuanelli, Stefano Buffagni and above all the regent Vito Crimi, the foreign minister is trying the latest, desperate, mediation in particular on the knot of the new state to avoid the sensational breakup .
