Seminar by Bruno Mascitelli (Swinburne University)

‘Italy: The illusive chase to further political transition amidst political and economic crisis’, Dr Bruno Mascitelli (Swinburne University), November 20 2012, 5.30, Italian Institute of Culture, 233 Domain Rd, South Yarra  

 Dr Mascitelli’s presentation will first consider that Italy since the political crisis of the early 1990s and the political period of transition of the “Second Republic” has been defined by its stumbling from one crisis to the next, with parties and governments incapable and unwilling to forego their self-interest and govern across special interest groups. Dr Mascitelli will then examine the reasons why the political transformation never occurred and why it could not.
