Italy 2022 General Election Debate
September 6, 2022 at 18:30
ICD House of Arts & Culture
Following Mario Draghi’s government crisis at the end of July 2022, the Italian community is asked to vote for a new Parliament in September. Based on the needs of Italians living abroad which are around 27,000 only in the city of Berlin, the ICD has organized in partnership with COMITES Berlin (Committee for Italians living abroad) a political debate among different candidates for the House.
The moderator for the night has been Leonardo Vegli, ICD Project Manager for Italian events. He first gave all the information on how to cast the vote by mail and after opened the debate between candidates for the Europe constituency. Hailing from all parts of the continent, the guests were Federico Quadrelli (Partito Democratico), Maurizio D'Ercoli (+Europa) and Benedetta Scuderi (Alleanza Verdi e Sinistra). They had each few minutes to present themselves and then few minutes to answer six different questions. With great fairness, the candidates dialogued on citizens’ rights abroad, healthcare, taxes, and sustainability.
The event ended with a Q&A from the public and a reception with coffee and refreshments.
The Event was held in Italian
