«The penalty should take into account the fact that there are two lives cut off. I called Giulia Tramontano's mother, an unthinkable crime ». The prime minister said, Giorgia Meloniinterviewed by Bruno Vespa at the forum "L'Italia chevenire" at Masseria Li Reni.
As a mother, I called Giulia's mother
«It is a story that left me breathless, like most Italians. As a mother, I called Giulia's mother: the first thing I think of is her mother. She shocked me not only the coldness, it shocked me to see Giulia's video and the death of a baby who at seven months would have been able to live. So there are two people who die. The mother's womb is the safest place. Many things happen that seem unthinkable, the story of Giulia, the story in France, in the name of Jesus».

Women victims of violence witnesses in schools
«On the occasion of the International Day against Violence against Women – added Meloni -, I would like to bring the victims or relatives of the victims, to tell their story in schools. Nothing is more educational. The great challenge is the culture: I hope that in the parliamentary passage of our norms against feminicide there will be a terrain for finding a transversal agreement. I am very willing to work together and meet those who work there, not just women».
The prime minister also spoke about other topics, from the economy to the government's migration policy, here is a summary of the most relevant points.
Pnrr, the third tranche is coming
Will we be able to get the third tranche of the Pnrr soon? «Yes, in the sense that we are doing a very long and precise job with the EU Commission. The objectives, the qualitative ones, the so-called milestones, have already been verified, now we are at the targets, but we are working and I am absolutely optimistic. We are taking care, by 31 August, to work with the Commission to revise some objectives and insert some chapters of the Repower EU, which is a very important issue for us".
Without the reforms, the Pnrr fails
Tax, the structural cut of the wedge depends on revenue
"We try to free up resources to put them where needed: in Italy there is a problem of wages, the goal is to make the cut in the wedge structural, it depends on state revenues, which depend on growth".
Visco's reminder: “The high uncertainty requires prudence on debt and public finances. The Pnrr? There is no time to lose"
GDP is growing more than the European average, it's not a flash in the pan
«The most important figure is the Italian GDP which is growing above the European average. The government has to give its signals, the economy responds and is doing so, but it's not a flash in the pan. Italy has just reached a historic record for the number of employees and stable contracts and everything is driven by female employment".

On migrants in Europe there is a change of priorities
«We are making many steps forward on how to frame the migration phenomenon, not only with the German chancellor. Those who are intellectually honest can recognize from Scholz's statements that there is a change of priorities in Europe. Yesterday he said that we have to deal with the external dimension. Until yesterday the debate was how we manage secondary movements, within the EU. When I arrived at the first European Councils, I posed a simple theme: as long as we only deal with secondary movements, we unload the problem on top of each other and we won't solve it. By now the paradigm of the vision is shared by other European countries, even those that have been more skeptical».
