Italy's elections: Why it matters for Europe

It’s now almost one month until the general elections in Italy. Three candidates are taking centre stage: the centre-left’s Pier Luigi Bersani, the outgoing technocrat Mario Monti, and the flamboyant former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. Whoever wins this election will lead the eurozone’s third-largest economy. That’s why it matters for the rest of Europe.

With our guests:

  • Pino Arlacchi, Italian MEP, Socialists and Democrats;
  • Anneli Jäättenmäki, Finnish MEP, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats.

Programme produced by Salima Belhadj
