Italian politics for dummies

Saturday 21 October 2017, 14:45 - Coronet Theatre, Auditorium, £ 5

What is wrong (again) with Italian politics? The entire western world is in political turmoil, but when it comes to Italy, this turmoil seems to be deep and particularly complex. Is Italy once again in the vanguard when it comes to the decline of western democracy and new forms of populism? Is there something new happening in its political scene, or is it just something very old?

This event will be in English and partly in Italian with English translation provided.

Running time: approx. 80 minutes.
