The choice of place

it was not accidental. One of the central themes of his campaign will be precisely that of the ecological transition, and the port of Rouen the right place to mention industrial reconversion.

The choice of the moment, not even. In fact, the announcement arrives three days beforerelease of his book Une femme franaise (in Italian, a French woman), in which I will explain what are her priorities and her vision of France.
