Raggi versus Salvini: "Look, he's talking to himself"Rome mayor Virginia Raggi posted a video mocking Matteo Salvini, the leader of the right-wing Lega party, who was walking around the Campidoglio on 27 November making one of his Facebook Live posts.
Salvini was busy blasting Raggi's administration over its "total incapacity in [dealing with] the waste emergency looming over Rome and Lazio", when the mayor sent one of her staff members down from city hall offices to record Salvini making his video.
Raggi then posted her own video, accompanied by the Radetsky March by Strauss, with the caption (in Italian): "Look at these images: the leader of the Lega Nord announces to the citizens his visit to the Capitol welcomed by a cheering crowd and instead ... he ends up talking to himself... Salvini Chiacchierone, hands off Rome".
