Opposed to homosexuality but huge popularity
She worked at the Piper Club, one of Rome’s most famous nightclubs. In 2008, then Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi appointed him the country’s Minister of Youth. She was the youngest minister to be appointed to this post. Meloni is a conservative leader who opposes homosexuality. His party won only 4.5% of the vote in 2018, but after that the popularity of the Brothers of Italy took a huge leap.
Supporters of Mussolini and former relationship with controversies
Meloni also favored good relations with Russia before the invasion of Ukraine. But, during the election campaign, he openly supported Ukraine and also talked about sending it arms. Giorgia Meloni praised Italian dictator Benito Mussolini in 1996. Not only that, she was also controversial in 2020 for praising Nazi ally and MSI co-founder Giorgio Almirante.
