The next 26 May, together with the European elections, will be held the Italian administrative elections. We have taken steps to find candidates of Albanian origin that you can consult
Today we present the seventh candidate, Ben Kulli, born in Shkodër, Albania.
I was born the 15 August 1976 in Shkodër Albania. In the 1996 I come to the splendid city of Ferrara to study in the faculty of law.
After three years I interrupt my studies for economic reasons and start working full time as a building apprentice. In 2006 you open a company of mine that today has become a real company with more members and workers that we have called Estense Restauri.
For a year and a half I have been a member of the Civic Cultural Association, which is called Forza Civica.
I decided to give my contribution as an independent on the Forza Italia Ferrara list, for the 2019 administrative elections for the center-right candidate for mayor Alan Fabbri
Interview with Ben Kulli
I love Ferrara is my contribution so that this city returns to be the city that many envied us: with a strong identity, with beauty, tranquility, serenity
1. What is your proposal in the Forza Italia program? If you win, what do you think you propose to be innovative for all citizens?
I will propose to facilitate more small-medium industries, which in the years in Ferrara are almost disappearing.
And to take better care of the suburbs, which are also part of the city
2. Why do you think they will have to vote for you?
They have to vote for me because I think I have shown over the years that great results come not only thanks to politics, but thanks to hard work, sacrifices and respect for others.
3. Being in possession of a dual citizenship, belonging to multiple cultures and speaking multiple languages is a point of advantage or disadvantage for you and why?
It is a point of great advantage. The first is that you speak two languages.
4. You are of Albanian origin. What is Albania for you?
First and foremost is the land in which I was born and lived for 19 years. The house where I learned values and respect for others. A part of me remains, where every year I return willingly and let my children know the land where dad was born, raised, studied, customs, culture and language. My roots.
That due to a bad government system over the years has meant that we have left our country.
5. What does it mean to have a foreign name in your everyday life?
The only one asked me where I came from such a name / surname
6. Are you Italian enough for those who will vote for you?
Of course I feel part of this city, since here I found hospitality, home is above all I built my family.
7. Do you care about polls? What do they say about your list?
The polls for local elections are useless to me. What matters are the people who tell me that they stop me on the street and tell me that they intend to vote for me, that they tell me questions that are important, the friends who encouraged me and continue to encourage me to go on this path.
8. What does it mean to be integrated in your opinion and what are the proposals to be made to improve immigration policies?
Integrated means respecting the country that has welcomed you above all its uses and customs
9. Do you notice any difference between your parents and you in the way you live in Italy?
Yes, they have difficulty feeling at home, for the simple reason that they have spent sixty years of their lives in Albania.
10. Is there an organized Albanian community where you are a candidate? (like some association, a school, etc.). How many Albanians are there in your constituency?
Yes, Vatra association. In our city they are about 1800 Albanians. About 600 already Italian citizens, and others already integrated and settled.
11. Don't you think they only chose you to draw on the votes of your community?
Also for that, but he thought that the vote will also be of many Italians who know my person
12. What do you have to say to the other candidates of Albanian origin who compete in other lists?
Good luck, and let everyone win
