Italy's political stalemate: no government in sight in Rome

Italy may have a new parliament, but there's still no government in sight in Rome. Beppe Grillo's political tsunami has shaken Italian politics to the core. These are dangerous times for the country: its economy shrank by 2.8 percent last year and borrowing costs have begun rising again amid the political uncertainty. Where is the country heading?

A debate with our guests:

  • Gianni Vattimo, Italian MEP, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats;
  • Anna Maria Corazza Bildt, Swedish MEP, European People's Party.

Presented by Christophe Robeet

Watch Part Two.
