Rama in Milan

Prime Minister Rama, during his speech from Milan, where he is holding a meeting with the Albanians who live and work there, expressed that, from the old arboreal roots, established by the pact of our national hero, Gjergj Kastriot Skënderbeu, with the King of Naples , large families and prominent people emerged over the centuries who left their mark on the history of Italy.

"In every corner of the province or municipality, where alongside the Italians, the Albanians shined with their talent, feats and extraordinary will. Right there on that very narrow path between the homeland that you left behind, weighing like the fate of Albania raised from the grave and between that homeland that stepped on you, you found the safest homeland, yourself. You discovered the unstoppable strength to chase your dreams.  

Beyond the myth, Virgil's account reveals to us that every identity has its origins in someone coming from somewhere. Even in this Mediterranean basin of ours, you Albanians of Italy and those of Greece are today one of the examples, the foundation of a European civilization, freer, more comprehensive than its Greek and Roman predecessors.

Our national hero was a loyal warrior of the King of Naples, with whom he was bound by the pact that paved the way for the consolidation of an Albanian community from Puglia to Sicily, where the language of Scandërbejan Arberia is preserved in 51 Italian municipalities. From those old tree roots emerged over the centuries great families and prominent people who left their mark on the history of Italy", continued Rama in his speech.

Prime Minister Rama, while speaking at the meeting with the Albanians in Milan, said that they come to Albania today in a completely different place than the one they left when they fled years ago from the "eyes and feet".

According to Rama, Albania's good time has finally come and only we Albanians, inside and outside its borders, can and will make this time, a time that will be marked in the history of our time, such as the time of reunification final with the European family.

"I am telling him that I will believe in today's Albania, tomorrow's Albania will return his faith many times over. Here it is possible for people to be islanders and mainlanders at the same time, and to stay away from the evils that come from both, enjoying both the one and the other.

For every foreigner at the threshold of the Albanian's house, you come today to an Albania that is very different from the one you ran away from "eyes and feet".

Don't forget exactly why it is like that, there are many opportunities for anyone who returns with knowledge, experience, with their own savings and who, having learned the courage, will win for themselves and their family more than those who are reluctant and they think and expect to find it ready.

The one who will return sooner will have more years ahead for the split soul, but you are not at all forced to choose one or the other, because today you have the opportunity to belong to both.

No one knows better than you the word work, the money earned and saved with many sacrifices, in a country that until yesterday was foreign, and today it is yours.

Albania's good time has finally come and only we Albanians, inside and outside its borders, can and will make this time, a time that will be marked in the history of our time, such as the time of final reunification with the family European", declared Rama at the end of his speech, which he closed with the words: "Long live Albania, Viva l'Italia".
