The general elections of March 2018 opened, once again, a turbulent phase in Italian politics. After a long government-formation process characterised by many twists and turns, a new cabinet was sworn in, introducing several novel elements into the Italian political system. The so-called ‘government of change’ is formed by parties that are (the Five Star Movement) or have recently been (the League) outside the mainstream of the Italian party system.
