Fratelli d’Italia, from nationality income to disability: i

Italy has elected the brothers of Italy: Giorgia Meloni’s party won the majority of the votes and is about to divide the seats of the parliament. But what is the “social thought” of this political formation? Let’s try it through some excerpts from the Brothers of Italy program.

The family

The family is at the center of the social and economic policy described here, like the other parties. There is talk of “progressive introduction of the family quotient, i.e. of a taxation system that takes into account the number of family members”. Central is also the universal individual allowance, of which the FdI intends to increase the amounts “up to 300 euros per month for the first year of each child, up to 260 euros from the second year of life up to 18 years and maintenance of the current Allowance up to 21. To support the birth rate, we want to reduce the VAT rate on products for early childhood, to open free nurseries until the closing time of shops and offices, as well as the promotion of company nurseries, condominium and family nurseries after Model German by Tagesmutter. There is a reference, although not in depth, to “concrete support for families with dependent disabled people” and it is proposed “the tax deduction rate for the costs of families for the employment of caregivers for non-self-employed to raise people, and deductibility of expenses for domestic workers”.

“Make room for the young”

Among the measures designed for young people, there is a focus on sports, through “investments in new generation sports facilities, for every discipline. Areas equipped for sports and parks in all Italian municipalities”. But there is also room for culture, with facilities where you can simply practice music, art, theater and dance. The school must become the nerve center of the territory and its community, a link between families and institutions, with afternoon opening and synergy with entities of the third sector to expand the cultural and sports offer. Establishment of scholarships for sporting and artistic merit. Promotion of healthy lifestyles to combat restlessness and youth deviations, such as drugs, alcoholism, pathological gambling, bullying and the spread of child gangs.

Training, work, merit

The recognition of merit is especially important in schools and universities “for students and teachers”. A non-detailed reference is then made to the “opposite to early exit”, to the “updating of school courses, protection of classical subjects and strengthening of the teaching of scientific subjects in all institutions, starting with mathematics. the “expansion of technical institutions and reform of the transversal pathways for skills and orientation (PCTO)” proposed and it should “restore the study pathways that enable work”. Among the other proposals regarding education, “more Sports in schools, with new facilities, swimming pools and gymnasiums” and “Protection of equal schools and freedom of educational choice for families, also through the introduction of vouchers that can be spent freely in different schools. Structures”. It is also necessary to “strengthen the teaching profession”, by “contrast of historical precariousness and didactic discontinuity; continuous updating for teachers; the gradual alignment of teachers’ salaries to the European average”.

As far as work is concerned, from a more strict social point of view, “a greater use of European funds to support the employment of vulnerable people” is foreseen and it should “ensure the safety of workers with adequate investments in prevention and promote training activities; review the Consolidated Law on Accidents at Work”

Income of nationality, disability, caregiver

Doing nothing for the citizenship income, which the FdI intends to “abolish, introduce a new tool that protects people without income, effectively fragile and not working or difficult to employ: disabled, over 60, families with dependent minors. For those, who can work, training and strengthening of the active labor policy”. At the same time, “an increase in the minimum and social pensions” is foreseen, as well as the “strengthening of the right to educational measures for people with disabilities and specific learning disabilities, also with an adequate increase in the number of teachers, educational operators for autonomy and Communication”.

Again, regarding the disability, “removal of architectural barriers”, “introduction of greater safety measures in favor of fragile, immunocompromised and severely disabled workers” and “completion of the regulation of “family caregivers”, the concrete measures for economic support for the right to “. Support also for third sector entities, “especially those that help people in economic and housing difficulties”. And “the strengthening of the universal civil service, through the allocation of additional resources”.

The elderly, health

The right to a peaceful age, as defined in the FdI program, is articulated through several measures, including “support for the municipalities for the construction of new social centers for the elderly and incentives to carry out activities for psychophysical well-being and the same “, but also incentives for “social housing activities of coexistence between over 65 and intergenerational coexistence”.

With regard to health and health, it is envisaged, among other things, the creation of a health authority that is independent at the administrative level, with inspection and reporting to the relevant authorities, to which all citizens rely due to lack of quality or. Lack of access to services”. We also want to “encourage the spread and development of telemedicine, home care and territorial assistance in inland areas with low population density” and “inequalities between regions in the provision of health services and essential levels of assistance ( Lea) reduce”. The Lea, according to FdI, should be extended to essential dental care.

The “overcoming of the glass ceiling” is one of the main goals that the FdI has set in terms of equal opportunities and for the “defense of the freedom and dignity of everyone”. Translated, it is the overcoming of the “invisible barrier that hinders the affirmation of women in the world of work”, including the “contrast to the salary between men and women and the pink tax, the hateful practice of applying higher prices to products intended for women “and” to all forms of discrimination, promotion and support of emancipation ways from cultural stereotypes that see women in a state of subordination. Once again to protect women, we are talking about updating the legislation on domestic violence and gender-based violence (Red Code): autonomous application of the electronic bracelet, regardless of personal precautions, always allowing the victim to equip himself with an alarm and request for help in case of violation of the stalker’s distance “.

Quick reference to abortion, with reference to the commitment to “protect human life from the beginning”. We then propose the “contrast to all discrimination based on the sexual and sentimental choices of people, maintenance of the law on civil unions”, but it strongly confirms “the prohibition of homogenitorial adoptions and the fight against any form of surrogate mother, in the supreme . interest of the child”.

Fight against illegal immigration

On the crucial question of immigration, the emphasis is placed on the “flow decree as an instrument of international cooperation”, with the aim of “managing regular entries into Italy”. At the same time, with the same purpose, “Agreements between the EU and third countries are intended for the management of the repatriation of illegal immigrants, subordinating the cooperation agreements to the readiness to repatriate the states of origin”. Critical passage about non-governmental organizations, where the FdI program provides the “contrast to the activities of NGOs that favor illegal immigration”.
