The reasons for the law

The battle of Rampelli in defense of the Italian language it’s not new: also in the past legislatures the exponent of the Brothers of Italy had presented similar law proposals and to establish a “Superior Council” against the abuse of foreign languages.

According to Rampelli there is a concrete risk of extinction for the Italian language, threatened by “obsessive strangers” which risk “in the long term of leading to a collapse of the use of the Italian language until its progressive disappearance”.

“According to the latest estimates – reads the text of the proposal – from 2000 to today the number of english words merged into the written Italian language increased by 773 percent”.

Hence, according to the Brothers of Italy, the need to replicate what was done by France and Spain, which have adopted similar measures in the past.

There is no shortage of political controversy. Benedict DellaVedova of +Europa tweeted: “What will be the next step, Mr Rampelli? Cancel the day hospital? Abolish streaming and downloads? Going back to calling Panatta’s sport tennis? Promoting the correct use of the Italian language is acceptable, doing it with autarkic prohibitions and sanctions is comical”.

While Charles Calenda he commented on Twitter: “Today a titanic battle is underway for the palm of the crazier stance between Ignazio La Russa and Rampelli, who presents a law against those who do not use the Italian language in public institutions and investee companies”.
