Agreement in Sicily between Forza Italia and Renzi, for the Region the “dream” is to launch the name of Gaetano Micciché


A very large coalition with a heart at the center. One way to test the “Draghi” model in the electoral region that will go to the vote a few months before the next political elections, Sicily. In recent days Matteo Renzi and Gianfranco Micciché, leader of Forza Italia, laid the first foundations of this path.

To the Regional Assembly the common group between the two parties has already been made official with the cry of “enough populism and sovereignty”. “We will make lists together with the upcoming elections to the Municipality of Palermo and the regional ones to make a moderate component prevail,” said the leader of the Italia Viva Nicola D’Agostino, a deputy from Catania who has been working on the accodo in Sicily for months, then signed with a dinner at Enoteca Pinchiorri in Florence between Micciché and Renzi made known by the newspaper La Sicilia. And, coincidentally, in these days Renziano Davide Faraone is organizing the “political school of Iv” by bringing together Giancarlo Giorgetti, Mara Carfagna and Gianfranco Micciché. The wide field.

Just Micciché in recent days has however been clear on non-re-nomination of Nello Musumeci, outgoing governor and former missino who now tries to get back in the good graces of Giorgia Meloni. But he also added something else speaking to Corriere della Sera and the Blogsicilia website: «The candidate for the presidency of the region for next year will be an expression of Forza Italia. To date, Musumeci is not a candidate for me. I read that he says he is but does not act as a candidate. He doesn’t talk to the parties he considers a cancer. He has done so since the beginning of his presidency. In four years we have only held two majority summits because we have demanded them. This being the case, it seems to me very difficult for the parties to converge on a candidacy that has not been asked of them, of a person who does not speak to the same parties. It must be a person of great competence and ability. I already know the name but I don’t say it. The right time will come to communicate it, but it is not now ».

Behind the dinner, and behind the agreement at Ars, in short, there is much more. In 2018 Miccichè was elected president of Ars for the broken headphone and thanks to the votes of D’Agostino and other dem deputies then merged into Italia Viva. A few months earlier Davide Faraone, Renzi’s proconsul in Sicily, had tried to propose to the Democratic Party an agreement at the center with Forza Italia on the candidacy of Gaetano Micciché, manager of Intesa Sanpaolo, who at the time had not even considered the possible descent into politics in Sicily. Five years have passed, the political picture has been turned upside down, and now with Draghi at Palazzo Chigi why not try to create a government with a broad coalition almost of national unity in the poorest and most disastrous region of Europe?

It is no coincidence that in Rome the name of Gaetano Micciché, manager of Banca Intesa today at the helm of the subsidiary Banca Imi, now circulates insistently in the political palaces as a possible next candidate in Sicily under certain conditions. A name that would scatter the cards and even the sides. But who would never accept to take the field without a broad and clear political framework on the model of his most illustrious colleague Mario Draghi. In Sicily the construction site for the large moderate coalition is open and on another thing Micciché and Renzi agree: no return of Salvatore Cuffaro in the match, with the former governor who with the DC is trying to return to the field.
