The Italian Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni, announced this Friday morning that she has broken off her relationship with her partner, the journalist Andrea Giambruno, with whom she has a seven-year-old daughter. “My relationship, which has lasted almost ten years, ends here. I thank you for the wonderful years we spent together, for the difficulties we went through and for giving me the most important thing in my life, which is our daughter Ginevra,” the leader of Brothers of Italy wrote on her social networks.

On Thursday night, Striscia the Newsa satirical program by Mediaset, the same group for which Giambruno works, broadcast recordings recorded behind the scenes of the program presented by Meloni's ex-partner in which he is heard making sexist and sexual comments to a colleague. She is not seen on video, but her comments can be heard.

In the recordings, you can hear from the sound how Andrea Giambruno approaches a colleague backstage and blurts out: “Can I touch my package while I talk to you?” “You already have,” she responds, annoyed. Then he continues: “You are a very intelligent woman, but why didn't I meet you before?” And he insists: “Do you have a boyfriend?”, to which the woman responds: “Yes, I already told you this morning, Andrea.” “Are you an opener?” he insists.

The tone at first seems joking, although it is evident that Giambruno's comments are annoying for his interlocutor, but as the conversation progresses, the journalist becomes more insistent and impertinent. "What is your name? We know each other? Where have I seen you before? “Was I drunk?,” he continues. And he continues: “How do you say, love? Do you know that (here the program omits someone's name) and I have an affair? All of Mediaset knows it, now you too, but we are looking for a third participant because we do threesomes, even foursomes with... (and the name is also omitted here) Have you fucked?”

“But you have to give us something in return.”

But it doesn't end there. The presenter asks again: “Do you want to join our team?” Upon the woman's affirmative response, he continues: “But you have to give us something in return.” “My competition?” she asks. And she adds: “Is there an aptitude test?” Giambruno responds: “Yes, we make foursomes… translated: we have to fuck.” Then a man intervenes: “If Striscia records you, you'll see…”. “But hey, we're joking, we have to joke, we come from the pandemic, we weren't even talking about the Treasury,” Giambruno responds.

The prime minister has referred to her relationship with the Mediaset journalist: “Our paths have long since parted and the time has come to take note.” And she added: "I will defend what we were, I will defend our friendship and I will defend, whatever the cost, a seven-year-old girl who loves her mother and loves her father, as I could not love mine." . I have nothing more to say about it. All those who hoped to weaken me by hitting me at home should know that no matter how much the drop hopes to undermine the stone, the stone is still stone and the drop is just water.”

The opposition has harshly criticized Giambruno's comments and has denounced that they are “incriminating sexual insinuations” towards female co-workers.
