As in a retaliation (great father Dante), the “man alone in command” of the past, strikes the new “man alone in command” in the heart. Reversing today the accusations suffered then. Because, in the end, Matteo Renzi’s awaited press conference, who in half an hour blows up a day of mediation, is all in one sentence: “The king is naked. Conte created a democratic vulnus ”. That’s right: not a simple “he governed badly”, but he “violated democratic rules”. And, since the world began, if one violates sacred principles, not only is he not worthy of being a premier, but is classified under the heading “danger to fight”.
If the words have a meaning, it was once said that they are like stones, it is a point of no return, because the particularly severe indictment concerns fundamental questions, which go far beyond this or that programmatic claim: the style and method of government, the concept of democracy, the justice system, international relations with Trump. And if it is true that the hardness of the lunge was cleverly accompanied by extreme tactical flexibility – Renzi denied wanting to “open the crisis”, saying he was ready to negotiate at a political table or in an appropriate forum – it is evident that in that final gloss “there is not a single name for Palazzo Chigi” reveals what the objective of this crisis was from the beginning. And that is, a radical change of scheme, underlined by the harshness with which he appealed the premier, addressed, rightly or wrongly, as a populist to be contained rather than as a pillar of a democratic alliance, is evident. And this must also have been the impression of the secretary of the Democratic Party who recorded a statement, also from exceptional times, in the minutes: “A very serious attack on Italy”.
Therefore, today represents a break in this crisis, consummated to the amazement of the protagonists, who saw a mediation that was too optimistically considered possible collapse, lasting the space of an interview at the Colle. It is there that the premier, first of all under pressure from Nicola Zingaretti, went to give reassurances that he would not attempt the way of counting in the Chamber and hunting down those responsible, opening that “legislative pact” with Renzi until yesterday emphatically denied. And if it is clear what happened, yet another spin in this political crisis and without pathos, what will happen is unpredictable. In other times, after Renzi’s words, the premier would have gone up to Colle to resign or to explain how to go forward, especially in a context of six hundred deaths a day, an announced third wave of a devastating character, in which the country perhaps has some right to know if the driver is in a position to do so In these times, in which one can insult each other without harming the consequences (the yellow-green government went on like this for a year) Conte not only avoided official statements, but, as we learn, he will take a few days to go to the Chamber next week.
Let’s say things as they are: Count two is no longer there, politically, he has failed. However, the crisis, politically dismantled, is only partially formalized, with the withdrawal of the ministers of Italia Viva, but, evidently, the premier has every intention, as if the last three months had not been lost between tables and lack of clarification, to verify if there is a way forward. That is, if a “group” of leaders will emerge, new Scilipoti hoped for by those who asked for the mandate bond, or other hypotheses that, at the moment, are not clear even in the thoughts of the protagonists, because the confusion of thoughts is a handicap for the reporter who he tells them.
In short, a sensational political crisis, on a formal “quasi-crisis”. If the words make sense, the one who violated the democratic rules in the bis cannot lead a ter. Yet this will be the discussion over the next few days, net of today’s fireworks: the margins for “a legislative pact”, another phrase repeated for six months with some inconclusiveness. Moral: do not ask yourself how it ends, because it is still long, unless the head of state decides to seek clarification, asking the premier how he is able to ensure the operation of the government. And maybe, with it, someone who also explains it to the country.
