Following the resignation of Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, Brookings Visiting Fellow Giovanna De Maio explains what led to the government crisis, the likelihood of Italy’s political parties forming a new coalition government, and whether Matteo Salvini’s League has enough popular support to win an outright majority in elections. De Maio also examines the “Moscopoli” scandal over the role of Russian financing in Italy’s politics.
