Income of politicians, who are the richest.  M5s: Count on the Jaguar, Deputy on the Boat

In 2021, former Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte declared revenues of just €34,000. But he consoled himself by driving a 1996 Jaguar with 320 hp. Of course, his assets are insignificant compared to that of his deputy in command of the M5S: Michele Gubitosa from Irpinia, in fact, in addition to declaring income of more than three hundred thousand euros, boasts the ownership of a beautiful sailboat, the Sun Odyssey 349, as well as being the sole owner of a company, HS Company srl, which in 2019 had a turnover of almost 12 million euros.

These are some of the curiosities that arise from consulting the equity statements for the 2021 financial year that deputies and senators began to make public, by law. Those of most ministers, Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and some leaders like Matteo Renzi are still missing. But what we have read is enough to draw a profile of the main passions of parliamentarians. Like that of Minister Eugenia Roccella for the shareholder structure: between Intesa Sanpaolo, Eni, Unipolsai and other companies in the portfolio there are holdings in excess of two hundred thousand euros. Little, however, compared to Enrico Letta, who with 20 thousand shares of Publicis Group Sa currently boasts a capitalization of 1.2 million euros. Nor does Greens leader Angelo Bonelli, who between Tiscali and Inovio is close to 150,000 euros worth.

Among those who are doing better is forced worker Cristina Rossello, a lawyer, who declares income of around 2.1 million, while former minister Giulio Tremonti has to “settle” with just under 1.6 million.

As for the contributions received for the election campaign from individuals, the leader of Più Europa Benedetto Della Vedova is filled with the beauty of 317 thousand euros (Maria Elena Boschi stops at 113 thousand). And under the rubric “curious passions” we can include that of Calendiano Enrico Costa for “punchball”, an almost unknown sport, of which, however, the deputy of Action! presides over the Italian Federation. The leader of the Italian left, Nicola Fratoianni, loves to fly by in a powerful BMW F800 Gs, while Carlo Calenda’s tax return is surprising for its moderation: in 2021 he earned “only” 65 thousand euros, he does not own buildings or cars, but is content with a Liberty 125 scooter from 2022. Even better than Aboubakar Soumahoro: the deputy devastated by the scandal of family cooperatives in 2021 declared revenues of just over nine thousand euros. In addition to the co-ownership of a property that is presumed to be the house acquired with the wife.
