Elections stand between words and deeds. In Italy, there’s also competition as to who can best befriend the people. But unless we take all that’s being promised before the vote with a pinch of salt, the next Parliament would have to review all of Italy’s major industrial groups’ strategies. More or less all political factions, with diﬀering methods and emphasis, want to stop or at least slow the internationalisation that has little by little and laboriously taken place over the last 20 years.
