Rai of everything more. Or maybe not. Because everyone expected much more from the brand new Soldi-Fuortes combination. But “Rai is not the Opera House”; this is the most popular phrase up and down the floors (high and low) of Viale Mazzini. Where (especially on the upper floors) the indication of the parties is expected to proceed, strictly after the vote of the administrative, to the rotation of the directors of the network and TG.
While on everything else (cuts, amalgamations, structural men) the Rai top management will decide independently. But what is the risk?

Meanwhile, Ludovico di Meo has applied for the job posting of Rai San Marino. For the succession, the two most probable names are Paolo Corsini, current deputy director and close to the Brothers of Italy and Angelo Mellone, also in the FDI share and currently one of the deputy directors of Rai 1.
The League could focus on Marcello Ciannamea but Salvini would prefer the chair of general manager for him. Annalisa Bruchi is also on the track for the direction of Rai 2 but being “external” it is a hypothesis considered more difficult.
