According to a report in CN, the bill was introduced by Fabio Rampelli, who is a member of the Lower Chamber, and supported by Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.

However, all foreign languages ​​have been excluded under the new law. But the use of “Anglomania” or English words has been specifically targeted. The draft claims that both these languages ​​condemn the Italian language. It added that this has been made worse by the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, known as Brexit.

Anyone holding a position in public administration will need “written and oral knowledge as well as mastery of the Italian language”, according to the bill. At present, this bill has not been brought up for parliamentary discussion. It also bans the use of “acronyms and names” for job titles at local businesses in official documents.

According to the first article of the law, Italian should also be the primary language in all offices communicating with non-Italian-speaking foreigners. Furthermore, according to Article 2 Italian would be made “compulsory for the promotion and use of public goods and services in the national territory”. Failure to do so can result in a fine ranging from 5,000 Euros (Rs 4,44,924) to 100,000 Euros (Rs 82,46,550).
