Vincenzo Spadafora, former undersecretary to the Prime Minister, former minister and Luigi Di Maio's right-hand man, speaks for the first time after failing to be elected in the general elections: «Of course I was disappointed.

Then Spadafora tells Oggi about his journey «between Colombia and Ecuador with Terres des hommes. A return to first love, cooperation »and reveals his political projects. With an eye to the Pd. «I don't exclude that the one with Terres des Hommes could become a more structured commitment from January.

 !P!Oggi!IS!0049.2022!N!49 COVER KATE!E!.pdf “JUSEPPE COUNT ARROGANT” – On Giuseppe Conte it is very clear: «We were superficial in not understanding that we were delivering the Movement into the hands of a character who would have upset it and in doing so would not have shown any gratitude towards those who had brought it to 32%. I would never have thought that a person who finds himself, out of nowhere, acting as Prime Minister could have an arrogant and defiant attitude towards those who made it possible, as Giuseppe had».

“LUIGI DI MAIO? WE ARE EQUAL' – On Luigi Di Maio: «I do not deny the choice of coherence of having followed Luigi, with whom I lived all my political experience for six years … I owe him a lot but I believe that he too owes a lot to me and that he acknowledges it. Ours is an equal professional balance and a solid human relationship». And on the future he says: «My area of ​​reference has always been the centre-left, and the Democratic Party is the only family in which one can recognize oneself, with all its difficulties… If there were a space to contribute and do things for young people with the Democratic Party, so why not? Otherwise nothing prevents you from setting up something else ». Today Spadafora also reveals a personal dream: 'For my 50th birthday, in 2024, I would also like to give myself a civil union. But right now I don't have a boyfriend.'
