Reggio Emilia, December 4 - Italy's political
future is on the agenda of a conference by a new centrist
civil-society movement next Tuesday in Reggio Emilia.
Organized by the association Italia Futura, the location of
Reggio Emilia was selected because the city is home of Italy's
tricoloured flag, Luca di Montezemolo, president of Italy
Futura, said Tuesday.
Montezemolo, who is also president of Ferrari, will be
among the speakers at next week's conference, which organizers
claim is designed to help return the country to growth and
stronger civic development.
The group was founded in July 2009 by Montezemolo and
includes leaders from business and culture who say they would
like to improve Italy's political situation and the well-being
of its citizens.
Italia Futura describes itself as a think-tank for
developing new ideas, and organizers of next week's event say
they hope premier Mario Monti will take note of the event and
its outcome.
They also offered an endorsement of Monti, who was
appointed one year ago to head a caretaker government of
technocrats.
"We want serious people with serious policies and for us,
Monti embodies this model," Italia Future said in a statement.
Participants in next week's event will include Montezemolo,
Stefania Giannini, rector of the University for Foreigners in
Perugia, and Andrea Olivero, national president of the Italian
Christian Workers Association (ACLI).
Montezemolo has toyed himself with running in the next
elections for premier, slated for April.
Montezemolo has hinted he could run if that would serve to
"unite" conservatives who have lost their main rallying point
because of turmoil in ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of
Freedom (PdL) party.
He has said the time for uniting conservatives and
"regenerating politics" after a string of scandals that has
deepened public disaffection with traditional parties was "now
or never again".
