A long applause greeted Luigi Di Maio in the Sala Giada of the Hotel Sina Bernini Bristol, where the Foreign Minister announced his farewell to the Five Star Movement. About fifty deputies and senators have decided to follow him, causing their former group to lose the relative majority in Parliament. A sudden change of course, also with respect to the history of the Movement, as Di Maio points out: “We are starting a new path. We look to the future and to build it we need concrete ideas and the best talents in the country, because one is not worth the other – he stressed – There will be no room for hatred, populism and extremism “. Among those present in the room, ready to follow Di Maio in the new political project, the undersecretary Laura Castelli, the ex-Minister of Sport Vincenzo Spadafora, but also historical exponents of the M5s such as Carla Ruocco, Mattia Fantinati and Francesco D'Uva.
