“Being a candidate for the Chamber at 25 is an honor and an immense joy”. Matteo Capriolo, born in Varese on 25 August 1997 and former city councilor, is the youngest candidate of the Democratic Party in the political elections. “The candidacies of young people are not rhetoric because – he says – youth representation did not exist for a long time and we are not the future but the present. The center-right has not even done this reasoning”. A fan of Carlos Santana and a Juventus fan, Capriolo is a candidate for the uninominal Lombardia 2 -U01 which includes the northern part of the province of Varese, a historically Northern League land that gave birth to Umberto Bossi and the Lombard League. “If I lost at the start? The challenge is difficult but – he replies – there is a political fact to reflect on: the center-right here did not nominate an exponent of the League but of the Brothers of Italy (Andrea Pellicini ed) and the voters they will have to take into account “. Approaching the Democratic Party in 2016, when Renzi was secretary, Capriolo is a disappointment of that season. “He became like the critic, that is D'Alema who tried to destroy the party from the outside”. On the issues that the young dem will have to bring to Parliament Capriolo has no doubts: “Internships and precariousness in general, energy transition and civil rights”. “On the latter – he concludes – the Democratic Party will have to accelerate. We need an egalitarian marriage and Ius soli”.
