COP26, 26th UN Security Council convenes in Glasgow, Scotland When going to attend a climate change conference, the President Jair Bolzano He decided to do more important things for Europe: In the days when he could be at the biggest diplomatic event in many years to find a deal for the planet, Brazilian chose to honor the army of the country that fought in World War II. Visit your ancestral city in Italy, and in the north of the European country.
The president begins his visit to Italy on Friday. He is attending the G-20 summit in Rome on Saturday and Sunday. For now, Bolsanaro’s only bilateral meeting in Rome will be with Italian President Sergio Mattarella. However, the host will, by protocol, receive all the guests in the block. In Italy, Matterella does not have extensive powers. According to the constitution, the government is not under the administration of the president, but under the administration of the prime minister.
A few weeks ago, during his visit to Paris, President Carlos Franசாois asked for a meeting with the French government. But the local bodies did not accept the request.
The government points out that on Saturdays and Sundays, “bilateral meetings and internal meetings” are on the agenda. But does not explain what they will be.
With no other meeting yet confirmed, the Brazilian president will travel to other parts of Italy, while several leaders will travel directly to Glasgow, where the climate summit begins on Sunday. The Scottish government expects about a hundred foreign leaders.
But the Brazilian has other plans. On November 1, he moves to the small town of Anguillara Venetta, from where his ancestors emigrated to Brazil in 1870. The local mayor, Alessandra Buoso, caused outrage when the president obtained the approval of local politicians to receive the honorary citizen title.
The feast will cost 9,000 euros for the city’s treasures, which is 60% of the village’s year-round events. Puso, who was pressured by councilors on his decision, explained that he had no choice. From Matteo Salvini’s populist far-right party, the mayor made contact with the Brazilian government.
As the President visits his grandparents’ location, talks will begin on determining CO2 emissions in Glasgow and understanding the future of humanity.
But on the 2nd, Bolzano will be back in Italy. This time in Pistoia, north of the country.
The Brazilian Military Cemetery in Pistoia is located in the city where members of the Brazilian Fleet, who fought in World War II, are buried. Today, the site serves as a monument in honor of the Brazilian fighters who liberated many cities around Italy.
In the last months of the war, Brazil sent a military contingent of about 25,000 to Italy. The bodies of 462 dead Brazilian soldiers and officers were buried near Pistoia.
Like Bolzano on other foreign trips, the events of the coming days will again be marked by protests. In Rome, coalitions are mobilizing to organize protests against the Brazilian president, including Piazza Navona. That is where Bolsanaro’s delegation will stay at the Brazilian Embassy in Rome.
But protests will also take place in Anguilla Veneta, led by local clergy and opposition groups. On Monday, an event is planned in the central square of the small village to seek clarification from the city about the incident with Bolzano.
But he hopes the president will support him as well. In the Italian capital, a group of evangelicals is rehearsing an action in favor of the Brazilians.
