The Rise of Giorgia Meloni:

What It Means for Italy and the World

Italians went to the polls on September 25, 2022, to elect a new government. Results released early the next day showed that Ms. Giorgia Meloni, the leader of the nationalist Brothers of Italy, had led a right-wing coalition to a majority in Parliament. She was sworn in this month.

This election marks two milestones: the first woman elected as Prime Minister of Italy and the first time a party directly descended from Benito Mussolini’s fascist regime has risen to power.

Please join PCFR for a virtual program with Lorenzo Castellani, a lecturer in Political History at LUISS School of Government and an adjunct professor of History of Political Institutions at LUISS Guido Carli University in Rome, Italy, as he discusses what this election means for Italy, Europe, and the entire world.
