Michetti mie: L’Espresso on newsstands and online from Sunday 12 September


From the box that recalls the poster of the first “My friends” come four spring-loaded puppets: Meloni, Salvini, Berlusconi and him, Enrico Michetti, the candidate without quality who seems to be the result of a supercazzola signed by Monicelli. Except that the power games within the coalition that could soon reach the government depend on the result of the elections for mayor of Rome. And then for the Italians there will be little to laugh about.

In the portrait signed by Susanna Turco there are all the many defects and the few merits of the center-right candidate, chosen after a race to the bottom that is analyzed in detail by Massimiliano Panarari. Carlo Tecce, on the other hand, does the accounts in the pocket of Action, a creature of Carlo Calenda but above all the party of the wealthy. And Marco Damilano in his editorial focuses on the increasingly evident limits of the coalition that supports Mario Draghi.

Meanwhile, politics is looking for new ways: as in Ferrara, where the Northern League mayor and left-wing associations have worked together to restore Gad, a neighborhood torn from drug dealers. Small signs of life that do not fill the void of planning, as explained to Damilano by Arturo Parisi, father of the Olive tree who claims the victories and defeats of an unrepeatable season.

L’Espresso dedicates a long and detailed focus to the situation in Afghanistan. Francesca Mannocchi gives the floor to a policeman who has decided to stay “because if we want to fix this country we must do it”, while Filippo Rossi tells the fears and hopes of those who live in Kabul and Eugenio Occorsio calculates the economic potential of the Taliban state. Analyst Stephen Wertheim explains to Alberto Flores d’Arcais why the US should have withdrawn as early as 2003, Federica Bianchi reconstructs how the American turnaround could lead to the creation of a European Community army, and Gastone Breccia confirms the consequences of Biden’s decision on world geopolitics.

Not only mafia, but also precarious foresters and shepherds: they are the arsonists who destroyed 80 thousand hectares of Sicily in the investigation of Antonio Fraschilla: a problem amplified by global warming that affects the whole world and that will cost more and more even to ordinary citizens, as Vittorio Malagutti foresees. And while Simone Pieranni explains the new course of the Chinese government against economic inequalities, Stefania Di Pietro tells us how different circular economy initiatives, from Palermo to Varese, fight marginalization and waste at once.

Altan has fun behind the politicians engaged in compiling the electoral lists, Makkox follows Draghi in the most secret rooms of power, Biani also brings the Gladiator to the field in the Roman elections, Michele Serra reveals the surprising strategies of the Democratic Party for the Quirinale. While Gigi Riva invites you to meditate on the meaning of a symbolic date: 12 September.

And L’Espresso closes with Maurizio de Giovanni’s analysis of the Neapolitan boom that invades cinemas and bookstores (by Sabina Minardi) and with a memory of Daniele Del Giudice signed by his friend Roberto Andò.
