Italy will hold its next general election no later than spring 2018, with Beppe Grillo’s Five Star Movement (M5S) ahead in most of the polling in the spring of 2017. Daniele Albertazzi argues that despite intense media speculation about what a victory for the M5S could mean for Italy and its participation in the euro, the picture is far from clear and could be altered substantially by current negotiations over the country’s electoral law.
