Bilderberg 2012 participant and newly appointed Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta apparently wrote a letter to departing PM Mario Monti, who in turn unwittingly showed it to the press.
Letta’s signature on his recent appointment as Prime Minister of Italy hardly dried or a photograph catches Monti unwittingly presented a letter pointing to bartering in respects to who will be given what position in Letta’s new cabinet, both officially and privately.
The letter, appearing to contain words written by Letta directed at the former prime minster Mario Monti, was obviously shown to the press by the departing PM by accident. Although the letter was presented upside-down, a simple rotation revealed the text, reading as follows:
“Mario, when can you tell me the forms and ways that I can be useful, both officially (Bersani asks me e.g. to interact on the question of vice) and privately. For now it seems to me a miracle! And then miracles exist!”
The Bersani mentioned in the letter refers to Pier Luigi Bersani, who was responsible for the formation of the current cabinet. This letter begs the question, to whom or whose cause Letta (as Prime-Minister) wants to be useful both in official and unofficial capacity. Could it be an echo of his pledge to Bilderberg, which he visited in 2012?
This is less farfetched than one might think. In November of 2012, the Bilderberg steering committee convened a special dinner in Rome, inviting Monti to the dinner table, suggesting prearrangement not only of the preferred menu, but also Italy’s political future in the global context. Letta was present at the last Bilderberg conference at the Chantilly Hotel in Virginia, thereby guaranteeing himself a position of power in the near future.
Italy’s former premier, Mario Monti, earlier hailed Letta, trusting he “will be able to consolidate Italy’s international credibility”.
