Welcome to the discussion on the theme of self-production in ports, but what's the point of putting in place changes to the rules that make it rule within the Relaunch Decree, the measure presented by the Italian government to stimulate economic recovery affected by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic that is going through the process for his conversion into law? If you ask Italian Confederation of Armatori (Confitarma), a question that Actually it seems rhetorical since parliamentary democracy Italy has long since become a democracy government in which MPs are at best called to vote on government initiatives and sometimes to confirm the legitimacy of the incumbent executive.
