Change Italy can believe in? Populist backlash ahead of key elections

Emmanuel Macron should take heed. Across the Alps, a lesson in what happens when you don't deliver the goods. Just four years ago, Italy elected another young reformer, but when the ballots are counted on Sunday night, the centre-left's Matteo Renzi could be all washed up at age 43. We'll see why and ask about an electorate squeezed by austerity, fed up with corruption and nervous about immigration. The populist backlash is palpable. So what do Italians want? Are they drifting away from Europe?

Produced by Michele BARBERO, Alessandro XENOS, Laure FOURQUET.
