Francesco Lollobrigida: Tougher penalties for political violence

In recent days, the case of the beating in front of the school in Florence opened the debate on political violence. Many call for urgent intervention by parliamentarians to resolve a problem in time that could get worse. And on the resurgence of political violence that has occurred in recent days, Il Messaggero interviewed Francesco Lollobrigida, Minister of Agriculture and Food Sovereignty, one of the most heard men in the Meloni government, asking if he feels “worried that we are going back to the 70s” .

«Whoever commits violence – the representative of the executive immediately clarifies – from whatever side, will never find justification on the part of this government. And that should be clear. My generation still has the historical memory of what happened at the end of the 60s when the appearance of certain phenomena was underestimated. Now unfortunately this historical memory is being lost. And then, however, when the fire starts, it affects everyone”. What to do? “I believe that, if there is a will, Parliament could address the issue, perhaps increasing penalties for student assaults or longer suspensions for repeat offenders. Here we have threats to parliamentarians, cars of our diplomats set on fire, terrorists in assemblies in social centers. Political violence, wherever it comes from, must be erased.
