    All 19:30 The French president will return to the Quirinale for an official dinner offered by the President of the Republic. And tomorrow morning the actual signing ceremony will take place.

    THE QUIRINALE TREATY – No “predatory attitude” of France towards the Italian economy, but the common will to strengthen bilateral relations in the most disparate fields with “mutual benefit”, from international to European politics, from cross-border cooperation between the two police forces to culture, from the economy to defense. Sources in the Elysée specify the French objectives of the agreement and reject “what has been read in the Italian press” about the aims of Paris on slices of the Italian economy as “completely false”. “What we would like to create – they underline – is not fear, but true mutually beneficial cooperation. And this is the scenario that the Quirinale Treaty will propose”.

    Moreover, the time is more than ripe to complete the bilateral initiative, launched in 2017, which since then has seen “several slowdowns” until the resumption of negotiations this year: the crisis between Rome and Paris is now “at our side. shoulders “and today the quality of relations between Italy and France is” exceptional “, they still affirm at the Elysée. Between the two countries there is “a favorable alignment of planets”, the sources add, not to mention a honeymoon, also due to the “closeness between Macron and Draghi”, which translates into a relationship of “mutual trust and respect. “.
