I am an Italian American and I want one day to become a dual citizen though that is very hard from what I have heard. Thus, I keep an eye on Italian politics. Plus I am a political scientist. I fear what is happening in Italy. The left is insisting on centralism and European federalism under Renzi but the right has become unhinged under Mazzini. The center has somehow turned in Maio's 5 Star Movement, which has incoherent positions and provides no new solutions to old problems. Right now, Italy is rudderless. One of the central problems is that despite the left's general position that the country is too decentralized, it is in fact too centralize. An Italian federation would allow for the central government to deal with the msot important matters and each region would be able to have its own priorities. How do we convince Italians to support federalism?
