Italian political environment

Politics is inherently confusing. If you add to it the Italian flavor, be prepared to enter into another dimension…

Italy has a parliamentary system, like many other European countries. But as usual, Italy has a remarkable complex political environment. There are more than 20 parties. As a result, no party has chance of gaining power alone. So, every single government depends on a sophisticated arrangement of coalitions. You do not need to be a genius to realize that this approach can not work in a place like Italy…

During last April it was elected the new Italian government. It is the 62nd government since 1946. Thus the country had an average of one new government per year. No chance! It is impossible to set-up and pursuit long terms goals within this ever changing context.

Another dangerous element is again present in Italian politics: right-wing populism. The platform of the insidious Lega Nord: you can blame immigrants for every single Italian problem. Just check the campaign outdoor reproduced below. If your Italian is not so good, the text says something like: They sufered with the immigration. Now they live inside reservations! It is evident that Lega Nord foments xenophobia. What to say about racism? Maybe… Fascist Italy? Again?
