Populism, violence and Euroscepticism in Italy's election campaign

Why was the political reaction to the shooting of African migrants in Italy earlier this month so muted? Why are populist parties doing so well in the polls?

This week, we debate why populism, violence and Euroscepticism have come to be such dominant themes of the election campaign in Italy.
