Renzi sets off in camper for centre-left leadership campaign


(ANSA) – Verona, September 13 – Future, Europe, merit: these
were the words chosen by 37-year-old Matteo Renzi on Thursday to
launch his campaign to lead the centre-left to parliamentary
elections next year.
The upstart Florence mayor arrived for the official
campaign launch in the northern city of Verona in a camper van
that is to be his home for the coming weeks as he tours Italy in
the hope of wresting the centre-left leadership from the veteran
Pier Luigi Bersani in primary elections scheduled for November.
The vehicle is marked with Renzi's name in red followed by
"Adesso!" - meaning Now! - in blue along the side.
On the back is "Primaries 2012" but the symbol of Renzi's
Democratic Party does not appear.
Following the campaign launch in Verona Renzi travelled to
Longarone in Veneto to remember the 1963 Vajont dam disaster
caused by a landslide that left nearly 2,000 people dead.
Thereafter he was due to travel to nearby Belluno before
ending the day in Padua.
On Friday he is due in the northwestern coastal region of
Liguria before returning to Florence for mayoral engagements on
In an interview with Roman daily Il Messaggero Roberto
Reggi, Renzi's chief of staff, said that the tour would be
similar to those made by other local mayors, during which "we
will gradually draw up the various points of our programme".
