On the 4th of December the so much waited constitutional referendum in Italy was held. The result left no room for doubts: NO won in a really massive way (20 points more or less). It is undoubtedly a shock on the Italian political scene. In the moment that we are writing you, Mr. Renzi has just resigned from his role and a new prime minister will have to be appointed in the next few days. Will be any repercussion of this result at a European level? Will the policies in the different areas be shaped differently than today?. And, most of all, will the role of Italy be more or less relevant at the Union level? In this number we will try to answer these questions.
In the meanwhile we would like to give you our best wishes for the Christmas time. We will take in fact a little break and give you an appointment in the new year!
See you in 2017 with NEU!
