Pd, even the former sardine Santori distances himself from Schlein: “I managed to mobilize more”

The much-debated “militant summer” professed by the Democratic Party is now ending and many are wondering what strategic moves were implemented by Elly Schlein with the arrival of the great heat. Meanwhile, yesterday, on National Unity Day, a meeting was held in Ravenna entitled “Participation, communication and formation of the new Democratic Party”. Among those who participated in the discussion, Mattia Santori did not go unnoticed. The former sardine, now councilor registered in the Democratic Party, retraced his “exploits” and admitted that, although the experience of his activism movement ended quickly, the new secretary of the DEM was “sardinized”.

As we read in Il Foglio, Mattia Santori was one of the protagonists of the debate that took place yesterday in Ravenna, within the framework of the Day of National Unity. “Our feat in 2019 was epic, then it ended badly, but Elly’s Democratic Party is sardinized”, said the former sardine without fear of contradiction, explaining later that the Democratic Party is changing and that it is following in the footsteps left by their movement of the fish. “What happened to sardines is a question that has always been asked, but part of a misjudgment, sardines were born as an alternative way to lend a hand. There are intellectuals who participate and show their face and others who don’t”, he explained.

The moderator then asked Santori to advise Elly Schlein ahead of the European elections. The founder of Sardinhas responded as follows: “The time of Sardinha showed that there is a people and that when the impulse comes from below it is strong. The political label pollutes its credibility. I managed to mobilize more and I had more. We need to have the courage to changing formats. What I dispute with the Democratic Party is that we consider ourselves progressive, but we are one of the most conservative parties in the Italian scene. I see that in the way we do it. There are circles that fight to change methods”. He continued later: “When we started, we were afraid of making a fool of ourselves. Then it worked. We have to take risks. We have the tools to communicate the changes and accompany them with content.”
