Giorgia Meloni (born January 15, 1977, Rome, Italy) is a conservative Italian journalist and politician, serving as the current prime minister of Italy. Co-founder of the Brothers of Italy party, and its president since 2014, Meloni has also been the president of the European Conservatives and Reformists Party since 2020. She has been a member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies since 2006, and served in the cabinet as Minister of Youth from 2008 to 2011. She is the first woman to hold the position of Italian prime minister.

Amid severe inflation and energy shortages in Italy in 2022, the right-wing coalition won the majority of seats in parliament during the election, and on 22 October 2022, Meloni was appointed the next prime minister, succeeding Mario Draghi.[1] The liberal media is calling her Italy's first far-right prime minister since World War II. EU dictator Ursula von der Leyen threatened the people of Italy if Meloni and her coalition win control of parliament.[2] Meloni opposes open borders and mass migration.[3]

In September 2022, Meloni, who is fluent in English, went viral in a post on twitter (that now has over 20 million views) of a speech she gave against the attack on traditional values.[4]

Prime Minister

On the new government's first acts was to provide self-propelled Howitzers to the fascist regime of Kyiv.


Social issues

Meloni is solidly conservative on social issues, ranging from opposing abortion, same-sex marriages, and homosexuality in general. She opposed a phony "anti-homophobia" law.

In March 2018, Meloni objected to propaganda by the Walt Disney Company in promoting a gay couple in its musical Frozen II, by saying "Enough! We are sick of it! Take your hands off the children."[5]

In 2022 Meloni spoke at the CPAC conservative annual conservative conference in the United States.[6]

Foreign issues

Unlike Salvini and Berlusconi, Meloni hold many Neoconservative positions like considering herself as pro-Ukrainian fascism.[7] Meloni also voted for the NATO war in Libya in 2011.[8]


Meloni is an avid fan of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.
