‘Melodi Moment’: Italian PM Meloni’s Selfie With PM Modi Goes Viral


Apulia: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni clicked a selfie on the sidelines of the G7 Summit, which concluded in Italy on Friday. The two leaders were seen smiling as Meloni captured the moment during the G7 Outreach Summit in Apulia.

This friendly gesture is a continuation of their camaraderie, which has been well-documented through previous meetings at the G20 Summit in Delhi last year and COP 28 in Dubai. Their interactions have inspired several online memes, with the hashtag “Melodi” becoming a trending topic. In December, Meloni shared a selfie with PM Modi from COP28 in Dubai on X, captioning it, “Good friends at COP28, #Melodi.”

During the G7 Summit, PM Modi and PM Meloni held a bilateral meeting to discuss defence and security cooperation between the two nations. “The two sides discussed bilateral defence and security cooperation and hoped for further enhancing the defence industrial collaboration. They welcomed the forthcoming visit of the Italian aircraft carrier ITS Cavour and training ship ITS Vespucci to India later this year,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in an official release.

PM Modi also expressed gratitude to the Italian Government for acknowledging the Indian Army’s contribution to the Italian Campaign during World War II, announcing plans to upgrade the Yashwant Ghadge Memorial at Montone in Italy.

The leaders reviewed the progress of the India-Italy Strategic Partnership, expressing satisfaction with the regular higher political dialogue and growing trade and economic collaboration. They emphasized expanding commercial ties in areas like clean energy, manufacturing, space, science and technology, telecommunications, artificial intelligence, and critical minerals to build resilient supply chains. In this context, they welcomed the recent signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on Industrial Property Rights, providing a framework for cooperation on patents, designs, and trademarks.

Additionally, the two leaders noted the signing of a Letter of Intent for Cooperation in Energy Transition, which will enhance bilateral cooperation in clean and green energy under the ‘Global Biofuels Alliance.’ Meloni congratulated PM Modi on his third consecutive term as Prime Minister, and both expressed happiness at the new Executive Programme of Cooperation for 2025-27 to promote joint research and development in science and technology.

PM Modi attended the G7 Summit in Apulia at the invitation of PM Meloni, marking India’s 11th and his fifth consecutive participation at the summit. “Thanked her for inviting India to be a part of the G7 Summit and for the wonderful arrangements,” PM Modi later wrote on X. “We discussed ways to further cement India-Italy relations in areas like commerce, energy, defence, telecom, and more. Our nations will work together in futuristic areas like biofuels, food processing, and critical minerals,” he added.

The G7 Summit, which invited India as an ‘Outreach Country,’ included participation from the seven member countries—the US, UK, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, and France—as well as the European Union. PM Modi’s presence underscored the importance of India’s growing role on the global stage and its commitment to addressing international challenges through collaboration and dialogue.
