Matteo Renzi became the leader of the Italian Democratic Party: and now?
The young Matteo Renzi, with a indisputable victory (70% of the vote) became the new secretary of the Italian Democratic Party. The Democratic Party is the first party in Italy. Currently, the Democratic Party has an absolute majority of votes in the House of Representatives, while the Senate needs the votes of the right-wing party called "Nuovo Centro Destra" created by the split from Silvio Berlusconi's party, Forza Italia. One of the objectives (or promises) that Renzi has set itself is to get rid of the need to steer with the right-wing party. He wants that the PD to dictate the agenda of the government. Now that he has become the leader of the majority party, he must demonstrate its ability to translate into practice the many promises made during the election campaign. I taken the photos you see during a public speech. It were artificially aged to make them similar to the photos of the old leaders of the past which, through photography, has been studied gestures during public speeches.
