Giorgia Meloni talks about what she felt about the event of Italian tourists in Berat
Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni spoke for the first time about the event with Italian tourists. She tells how she learned this from Rama, what she did immediately and why the opposition in Italy is wrong when it talks about Italy's image.
While I was in Albania, Prime Minister Rama told me the story of 4 Italians who escaped to a restaurant without paying the bill. The owner of the restaurant, after the pictures of the escape went viral, said he felt happy because our compatriots had eaten well and were satisfied.
I am ashamed, because the Italy that I want to represent is not a nation that makes itself known abroad about these things, that does not respect the work of others, that thinks it is fun by deceiving others. So I decided to ask the ambassador to go and settle the bill, which I personally paid. No big deal, in fact I didn't even report it.
However, this has also created controversy in Italy, from an opposition that clearly prefers a different image of Italy. I'm sorry because I was hoping that at least everyone could agree on something so trivial," wrote Meloni.
