"Florentine think tank, a reference point for the conservative world"
"Does the government [Conte I] share the views expressed by the Machiavelli Center regarding NGOs? If not, will it not officially distance itself from these theses?"
"The Center is known to have developed some of the policy positions brought forward by the League, one of the governing parties."
"The Machiavelli Center since the beginning of 2017 has been a real driving force behind the Lega identitarian theses ... It is the story of an influence. A soft power within the majority ... It is the new form of the deep state in the age of sovereignism."
"The Identitarian galaxy with its idea-makers [the Machiavelli Center] outside democratic decision-making venues has influenced the decisions of our government ... An unprecedented symbolic victory ... a masterpiece of metapolitics."
"What is needed is a strategic culture capable of infusing the parties, a team of scholars capable of drawing up analyses and evaluations to be delivered to the policymaker, a platform that acts as a collector of instances from the conservative area by involving intellectuals and making them think more organically. This is the mission of the Machiavelli Center for Political and Strategic Studies."
"That of the people is more honest end than that of the great, wanting these to oppress, and that not to be oppressed."
