Interviewed by Vanity Fair Italia on the new 5S-Lega government – Read the original Q&A in English

Summary:
Vanity Fair’s interviewed me on the new Italian government (see here). The complete, original Q&A follows below: So, Italy has finally a government. New Premier is Giuseppe Conte, a technician who was never elected. Do you think this is acceptable?  The new government has the consent of the majority of parliament. So, it is legitimate. My regret is that the Left has failed to garner enough electoral support to put in place a progressive alternative to xenophobic populism. Would you call it the “government of change” (like Di Maio name it)? Or it’s just the same politics but with other slogans?  It would be a mistake to assume that this government will mimic the previous ones by changing nothing. Donald Trump
