BREXIT: THE CHALLENGE FOR ITALY

19 March @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

HJS-event-banner-generic-image

In Europe, the British decision to leave the EU has received a bad press. In particular, the Italian mainstream media viewed withdrawal in a very negative light, with much of the reporting based on stereotypes and clichés: isolationism, anti-European attitudes and anti-immigration.

However, a recent Italian book – Brexit: La Sfida – which assembles a collection of essays from the English-speaking world, tries to counter these narratives. Its objective is to advise the Italian political establishment of a simple fact: withdrawal was a pivotal event for Europe, which could trigger a deep change in the EU. It argues that Italy, instead of positioning itself against the British decision, should take the opportunity to reform a weakened EU, finding in the UK a crucial ally in the process.

By kind invitation of The Rt. Hon. The Lord Howell of Guildford PC, The Henry Jackson Society are delighted to welcome Daniele Capezzone, a former MP in the Italian Parliament, and Federico Punzi, an Italian journalist (the editors of Brexit: La Sfida) to share their thoughts on the British decision to leave the EU and Italy’s potential role in the future of the EU.

Daniele Capezzone

Daniele Capezzone was a member of the Italian Parliament between 2006 and 2018. Capezzone is currently one of the Vice-presidents of the Acre. He has been chairman of the Finance Committee (2013-2015) and of the Industry Committee (2006-2007) at the Italian Chamber of Deputies. He is director of New Direction Italia, the Italian branch of the New Direction Foundation, and a member of the editorial board of the online magazine Atlantico. He has always been focused on two main points: a firm pro-Atlantic, pro-Nato, pro-West attitude in foreign policy; a clear free-market approach, giving support to tax-cuts and spending-cuts.

Federico Punzi

Federico Punzi is an Italian journalist and a broadcaster for “Radio Radicale”. At “Radio Radicale”, Federico Punzi reports on parliamentary activities concerning the House of Deputies. Formally, Punzi was the Editor of the Velino Press Agency.  Federico is a regular contributor to a number of leading Italian magazines, including “Formiche”, “OFCS report”, “l’Intraprendente” and “L’Opinione”.
