(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 26 – A lecturer at Siena University was
suspended for three months Friday for calling nationalist
Brothers of Italy (FdI) leader Giorgia Meloni a “fishwife” last
month.
    Professor Giovanni Gozzini has already been suspended pending
the disciplinary ruling for what he said on Italian radio on
February 19.
    Gozzin insulted Meloni after she criticised Premier Mario
Draghi.
    The modern history lecturer called rightist leader Meloni a “fishwife” for “daring to criticise someone like Draghi”, a
former European Central Bank chief credited with saving the euro
whose nickname is Super Mario.
    Asked to moderate his language so as not insult fishsellers,
Gozzini replied “what should I call her then, a cow, a sow,
what fully captures her ignorance and arrogance?”
Meloni received crossparty solidarity after the incident,
broadcast live on Italian radio.
    FdI is the only major party in Italy not to have joined Draghi’s
national unity government.
    But Meloni has said they will judge his policies on their
merits. (ANSA).
