Italy’s arduos chance

Italian politics has come full circle from the 2008 elections, the last that resulted in a clear majority. Since then, following Silvio’s Berlusconi’s fall in 2011 there has been a sequence of large coalitions, the abrupt arrival of Matteo Renzi, his failure to reform Italy, a remedial government, the 2018 elections with the near victory of 5Star Movement and the right wing coalition, two Conte governments, and finally the salutary arrival of Mario Draghi: all this describes a system collapse that has lasted 11 years.
