Latest update : 2018-06-01

Italy: Is it contagious? Political crisis spooks Europe and markets

Italy's technocrat interim prime minister may never form a government. Will the Italian president call early elections or try again to cut a deal with an unprecedented populist coalition? Will a founding member of the EU be led by eurosceptics? With no clarity on the horizon, the now-steadied European markets may falter. Why is the backlash against traditional politics still growing, with new parties blowing up the old left vs right divide? When the dust settles, what will Europe look like?

Produced by Daniel BARNEY, Tommaso MAZZANTI and Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.

By François PICARD
