Super Election Month: Italy

Italy is the third biggest economy in the Eurozone – and possibly the most fragile one. The sitting parliament was dissolved right before the new year, and on the 4th of March the winner of the first election in 5 years will be determined. With parties like Movimento cinque stele (M5S) in the line up the election is set to be a strange one, and polls have yet to prove a majority for any party in an election that could be crucial for determining the future of Europe.

In the wake of this event, the Uppsala Association of Foreign Affairs invites you to an exciting night of Italian politics as the people of Italy vote for the first time in their newly reformed electoral system. Join us as the election results come in, learn more about Italian politics and stay to see who wins!

The evening will start off with a screening of mini-lectures by Paolo Madugno – a candidate for the Italian Parliament and Professor of Political Science at Sciences Po. Throughout the evening, you have the chance to test your knowledge on Italian politics with a quiz and enjoy some great company with pizza and drinks on us.
