Italy, which has been hit harder from the spread of the Coronavirus than any EU country, is absolutely justly expecting its European partners to palpably express their solidarity.

Today’s meeting of the Eurogroup is of exceptional importance from that perspective and it will demonstrate if this is an hour of responsibility for Europe.
