The Italian Patient

Italian journalist Annalisa Piras assesses the state of her nation after the return to power of Silvio Berlusconi in March.

For the Italian Right, his victory was a welcome shake-up of a sclerotic economy and political system and a return to a proud Catholic country with strong family values and secure borders. For the Left, however, Italy is now in crisis, a land ridden with xenophobia and political corruption.
