Our group has selected the most famous Italian protagonists in history, to identify the different membership tiers of the British Italian Conservatives. The two criteria used to classify each membership focuses on the person’s political involvement and the common elements of these iconic figures who have all shared the same experience of Italians abroad to this day.
Activists– Cicero– £25.00 per annum
We chose Marco Tullio Ciceroni for his integrity, for his speech in defence of the Res Publica. Cicero spoke to defend the Res Public from the personal attack of dictatorship and defend from the corruption and personal interests. He was beheaded because he refused to subject himself to Marco Antonio’s dictatorship. This is the reason why we select Cicero, he represents the BIC abroad, speaks publicly, speaks the truth, defends the public and is ready to risk his own life for the commonwealth. A Cicero membership is the first stage inside of our organisation. If you would like to subscribe to the Cicero membership, you will receive a copy of the newsletter which will include all the future BIC events and will be invited to participate at canvassing outings.
