postato in: NEWS | 0

“The Five Star Movement has cultivated an image as a party that exists outside of the traditional left/right spectrum, and this image underpinned the party’s success in the 2018 Italian general election, where it secured over 32% of the vote. But as Pierangelo Isernia and Gianluca Piccolino explain, the diverse nature of the Five Star Movement’s supporters poses a major challenge for the party as it now attempts to negotiate its way into government.” (EUROPP – European Politics and Policy, LSE Blog).
