Why conservationism matters

Francesco Giubilei


The conservative movement has high hopes placed on Francesco Giubilei—and for good reason. Hailing from the bucolic city of Cesena, tucked between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea, Francesco serves as president of two of Italy’s most dynamic conservative groups—Nazione Futura, which he initially launched as a journal in 2017, and Fondazione Giuseppe Tatarella, named after the so-called “father of Italy’s democratic right”. Additionally, he works to bring the world’s most renowned conservative writers to market in Italy through his role as editorial director of the Giubilei Regnani imprint. As if that weren’t enough, Giubilei is also a scholar in his own right, with an astonishing number of books published for someone his age, most notably The History of European Conservative Thought (2017). More recently, he wrote Conserving Nature: Why the Environment Is Dear to the Right (2022). In this interview with Jorge González-Gallarza, Giubilei discusses some of his latest work, along with such topical questions as conservatism’s philosophical affinity for conservation and the lessons to be drawn from Viktor Orbán’s latest victory in Hungary.
