The Italian right sweeps to victory in Umbria: What now for the second Conte government?

On the 29 October, Daniele Albertazzi and Mattia Zulianello published an article for Europp (LSE), republished by EA Worldview: The Italian right sweeps to victory in Umbria: What now for the second Conte government?

They argue that the Italian right’s stunning victory in this region casts doubt on how long Italy’s current government — backed by the left and the Five Star Movement (M5S) — can survive. All eyes are now on still forthcoming regional elections to see if Salvini and allies can score similar victories again.
