The prestigious US newspaper also mentions the tennis player Matteo Berrettini, the Maneskin and the Turin TikToker Khaby Lame.
“Italy’s victory in the European Championships echoes a stronger rebirth”. With this title the New York Times celebrates the victory of the national team at Wembley, linking it with the general restart of the country after the months of the pandemic crisis. “The outbreak of absolute joy – between honking sounds, fireworks and hugs, so many hugs – throughout Italy after the victory of the national team over England at the European Championships marks a turning point not only for a recently troubled team but also for a recently tormented nation “, writes the New York paper. And the NYT puts in line some of the “fortunes” that have marked the last hours of Italy: the Wembley final but also that of Wimbledon, the return of the Pope in public after the operation and also the news that the Turin Khaby Lame is one of the most followed Tik Tok accounts in the world. And the newspaper recalls how, the arrival of Mario Draghi in February has “elevated Italy on the European stage from a marginal player to a driving force”. And for the NYT, Italy’s fortunes do not end there: the fact that more than half of the population is vaccinated, the restaurants and bars that have opened, the billions of euros from the EU and “even what was unimaginable, such as streamlining of a paralyzing bureaucracy, is now seen as plausible ». All this, we read, “has brought Italy into a stronger position than its European neighbors in which political uncertainty and tension abound but nothing unites the country like a great football victory”
