Albanian pride

“Proud to be Albanian” can be read on one of the banners in the stands of the UYBA sports hall. And Prime Minister Edi Rama, after his triumphal entry amidst choirs chanting his name and hundreds of flags waving, he gives a motivational “speech” based precisely on national pride. Not without remembering the prejudices that his migrant people had to suffer in Italy. “It was an Albanian” he repeats several times, in Italian, to remind us how his compatriots have often been targeted by racism, including in the media: Rama also mentions the figure of Umberto Bossi, who “with that tank top looked like he came out of comedy films” and who “came to Albania to buy his son’s degree”. To the point of suggesting: «If an Italian looks at you askance, Tell him straight up: “Is there something?”». But then he also underlines how the Italian governments have “taken care of Albania like no other”. When referring to the Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, “our friend”Edi Rama unleashes applause from the public, and thinking about the prospect of joining the European Union he uses very clear words: the objective is «to ensure that Europe finally begins to understand that it is necessary reunify it first through the bridges of democracyand not expand at a turtle’s pace through the channels of bureaucracy.”

The Albania that Prime Minister Rama represents is a growing country: «Today Albania has won the trust of the world and deserves the trust of every Albanian – the invitation to expatriate compatriots – to those who believe in today’s Albania, tomorrow’s Albania will return their trust many times. We are the outpost of the new Europe.” And a solid bridge remains with Italy: «Our relationships are those of friendship, respect, special partnership, today in Albania there are almost 21 thousand Italians and their number increases every week.” At the end the greeting to the crowd of the e-work Arena is unequivocal: «Long live Italy, long live the Italians».
