Big news! At the invitation of our European party Identity and Democracy (ID), the Italian top politician Matteo Salvini is coming to Flanders!


Salvini embodies the principles of identity and democracy like no other. On the one hand, he is one of the most prominent European politicians who immediately used his power as a minister to curb open-border policy. Italy, located on the Mediterranean Sea, moaned under immigration pressure and the associated crime. However, Salvini cleaned the ship. He promised to clean the country "street by street, neighborhood by neighborhood, square by square" and did what he promised.


On the other hand, Salvini is also the man who wants to put power back to the people. In his well-known style, he gives everyone attention at his busy meetings. He listens to what the ordinary Italian wants and translates that into policy. He is, of course, also critical of the European Union's rules-making industry. As he says himself: “People want to regain control of their country, their life. But that is not possible with this kind of EU. "


It is sometimes suggested about Italy that it is a political laboratory. We will see what happens there, sometime later elsewhere in the Western world. That is precisely why it is a unique opportunity to hear the man who will set the tone in the coming years in Italian politics speak.
