Mrs Federica Guidi is Mr Renzi’s Minister for Economic Development, a key position involving competences over Mr Silvio Berlusconi’s TV frequencies.
According to the Italian edition of the Huffington Post, Mrs Guidi should be considered a woman of the Cavaliere. Her family and Berlusconi’s one have a long-standing relationship, and she was offered high-ranking positions in Berlusconi’s party. Her appointment was reportedly engineered by Mr Denis Verdini, the power behind the throne in the Cavaliere’s party.
It is too early to say what all of this exactly means. Perhaps Mr Berlusconi wouldn’t mind openly supporting Mr Renzi to exact his revenge on Mr Angelino Alfano, his designed successor who in the end betrayed him like Goebbels did with Hitler.
