Autonomy is more than a desire, it is a cornerstone of the Constitution, as the president also recalled Mattarella, whom I thank for the clarity in his presentation. He spoke about article 114 but let's remember that autonomy was also foreseen by the founding fathers. This Constitution of ours is authentically federalist. The president of Veneto stated this Luca Zaia on the sidelines of the Festival of the Regions, taking place today and tomorrow in Turin. “The real problem is the centralist management of this country. In 48 Einaudi said 'we will have to give everyone the autonomy they deserve' – continued Zaia -.
Autonomy is not, as some would like to define it, secession of the rich or a subversive act but it is the will to fulfill what is foreseen in the constitutional provisions. The problem is that the management of the country has been exquisitely centralist and not federalist. There Constitution instead he is federalist. It is not the secession of the rich, it is not an attack on national unity but the desire to bring more responsibility. To quote former president Napolitano, when they asked him what he thought about autonomy when Veneto began the journey, he replied that autonomy is a true assumption of responsibility", he concluded Zaia.
