Silvio Berlusconi MEP (Media tycoon, four times Prime Minister of Italy, leader of Forza Italia party).<br />
<br />
Rome, 19/10/2019. Today, tens thousands of people (200,000 for the organisers, 50,000 for the police) gathered in Piazza San Giovanni to attend the national demonstration "Orgoglio Italiano" (Italian Pride) of the far-right party Lega (League) of Matteo Salvini. The demonstration was supported by Silvio Berlusconi's party Forza Italia and Giorgia Meloni's party Fratelli d'Italia (Brothers of Italy, right-wing).  <br />
The aim of the rally was to protest against the Italian coalition Government (AKA Governo Conte II, Conte's Second Government, Governo Giallo-Rosso, 1.) lead by Professor Giuseppe Conte. The 66th Government of Italy is a coalition between Five Star Movement (M5S, 2.), Democratic Party (PD – Center Left, 3.), and Liberi e Uguali (LeU – Left, 4.), these last two parties replaced Lega / League as new members of a coalition based on Parliamentarian majority as stated in the Italian Constitution. The Governo Conte I (Conte's First Government, 5.) was 14-month-old when, between 8 and 9 of August 2019, collapsed after the Interior Minister Matteo Salvini withdrew his euroskeptic, anti-migrant, right-wing Lega / League (6.) from the populist coalition in a pindaric attempt (miserably failed) to trigger a snap election.<br />
