The pro-Atlanticism is a categorical imperative of the center-right program, a project that intersects with the positions of the Democratic Party and supporters of the so-called “Agenda Draghi”.
Net of Bridge over the Straitwhich does not find many followers beyond Fi-Lega and Fdi, the more complex the game on the front of the reforms, with presidentialism and autonomy, on which Giorgia Meloni (for the former) and Matteo Salvini (for the latter) focus, which becomes a real watershed with respect to the center-left and the intentions of the moderates in the center.
And at the request of less taxes, with a flat tax of 15% also for employees relaunched by Matteo Salvini (for Berlusconi it could be enough at 23), the Democratic Party responds with the remodeling of the personal income tax the wage parity, and the dowry of 10 thousand euros for eighteen-year-olds to be obtained from a sort of asset. But the dem and the left are also relaunching civil rights, ius scholae and environmental protection. And, going against one of the hinges of the 5 stars, Enrico Letta would like the modification of the citizenship income and the superbonus 110. A divisive element between the center-right, the Democratic Party and the left is certainly the way in which the canons on security and migrants are declined (more oriented towards reception in the Democratic Party and the left and more on the concept of rejection by the Brothers of Italy and the Lega) with a further differentiation between Giorgia Meloni, Matteo Salvini and Silvio Berlusconi as regards the hypothesis of a “naval blockade” to avoid arrivals from Libya.
The 5 stars focus on aid to businesses and families, a theme on which substantially all the political forces converge, albeit with different declinations on the subject. And they keep the point on the minimum wage and the no to drills (an idea that unites them to the ecological left). The relaunch against job insecurity seems to be a common denominator.
One of the 15 points of the center-right focuses on health and new energy sources, which however would not say no to the clean nuclear of the latest generation: a decidedly strong step for the ecological left, the 5 stars (also opposed to waste-to-energy plants), and the Democratic Party.
Social inclusion is another workhorse of the center-right, while the fiscal cashback represents a point of reference for Conte’s party. The Draghi agenda stands out in the program of Carlo Calenda and Matteo Renzi, perhaps not secondary viaticum for a possible centrist agreement between Action and Italia Viva. To find the points in common in the programs of the two leaders there is therefore only the embarrassment of choice: from Atlanticism to Europeanism, to support for Ukraine. And again, the PNRR with the achievement of all 55 objectives. A PNRR on which instead the parties of the center are asking for some revisions.
In this context, a chapter of convergence between Calenda and Renzi is that of reforms, starting precisely with those initiated by the outgoing government, from competition to justice (starting with the reform of the CSM), from the tax authorities, with the IRPEF reform, to the social agenda. Attention also to energy and environmental policy, with a strong push for renewables, the installation of regasifiers which instead sees the opposition of the left.
