The Monthly Report aims to provide international analysts, journalists, and investors with a guide to the political scenario, policy-making process and opinion trends in Italy. Italian politics has always been an arcane subject, but today there are at least three reasons to try to better understand it. First, in Italy the crisis of the political establishment that is now evident in many advanced democracies has begun a quarter century ago. Second, Italy is the first country from within the historical core of the European community to be governed by anti-establishment parties. Third, its politics represents the greatest threat to the stability, or possibly even the existence, of the common European currency.
