The island is a power base of the Italian anti-establishment movement that could come out of the upcoming general election as the big winner.
Two populist groups have emerged as the main forces in Italian politics following the March elections. The Five Star Movement has developed out of a protest group and the League has stepped up to head the center-right.
Both the anti-establishment Five Star Movement and the right-wing League have claimed victory after the first elections held under the new electoral system. Italy's neighbors are looking for stability.
The Five Star Movement has signaled for the first time that it would prefer the Democratic Party over La Lega in a possible governing coalition. Italy has been without a government since its election last month.
The Italian prime minister's comments come after far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini announced plans for a Roma census. Salvini defended the census and tried to shift the focus to the protection of Roma children.
