He sends Joe Biden, who has landed in the night, to say, “Good job, Mario.” On the other hand, Vladimir Putin will not come, but he “congratulated”. As for the Europeans, it is Ursula von der Leyen who is losing her balance. “Cooperation with Draghi at the G20 is excellent. Without the basic preparatory work done by the Rome government, it would not be possible to discuss Covid, recovery and the environment.” Surprise, the greats come and find a different country.

Here, in Military Rome, are the G-20 leaders whom Draghi welcomed to discuss taxes, the economy, the environment, and living in Afghanistan again. Putin and perhaps Xi will call remotely from Moscow and Beijing, and the others are all here. Eve is a whirlwind of bilateral meetings. We begin with Joe Biden, who will be received by the Pope this morning and will be at Chigge Palace in the afternoon. The Italian Prime Minister will also meet with India’s Modi and United Nations Secretary-General Guterres. Instead, Berlin labeled the odd couple, outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel and incoming Social Democrat Schulz, as a “sign of continuity”. Then from Erdogan to the South Koreans, from the Argentines to Singapore, and from Macron to the Arabs: a weekend filled with meetings at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Eur, with an official lunch at the Quirinale.
