On the spotlight

by Lorenzo Piccoli

Today I tried to catch up with the Economist’s Charlemagne blog, which is one of the best sources of information on European politics. Interestingly, five out of the last ten articles are about Italian politics.  I think people in Italy do not realize the huge international attention for the coming election campaign. This will be, as stated by the second-last article, “a test of the maturity and realism of Italian voters. One could feel more confident if they had not on three occasions chosen Mr Berlusconi as their leader”.
