However, Enrico Letta (former Prime Minister) believes that the current government, headed by Mario Draghi, the former director at the European Central Bank (ECB), has the historic chance to defeat populism.
Mario Draghi, the former President European Central Bank (ECB), assumed the leadership of a government for national unity that brought together parties from every political spectrum in Italy.
