Un larga intesa, 1860

Una larga intesa, 1860

For those interested in Italian politics: the Italian Politics Specialist Group has a very informative blog with details of recent events (e.g., the formation of the Letta government, and the significance of the suspension of party government under Monti) as well as very reader-friendly analyses of features of contemporary politics. For example, a recent post by Duncan McDonnell draws our attention to the (virtually ignored) fact that after the 2012 local elections not one of Italy’s fifty largest cities has a female mayor.  Still a country for fogeys, old and young? Those wanting analysis of the M5S phenomenon and its recent electoral success can find it in the current special issue of Comunicazione Politica (n.1, April, 2013,) which examines several aspects of the movement.
