  • Claiming almost 28%, Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini's right-wing Lega triumphed in Sunday's vote in the Abruzzo Region, in what is seen as the walkup to the EU vote March 26. The big loser: Luigi Di Maio's Five Star Movement (M5S), with under 20%.
  • No TAP Commitee
    The clash between Italy's Minister for the economy and finance Giovanni Tria and the top political players overshadows all other arguments within the government. On the agenda are in-house quarrels over dropping the euro and the amount of monthly pensions, and going forward with the gas pipeline from Azerbaijan.
  • Matteo Salvini, 41, has outfoxed both Umberto Bossi and Roberto Maroni as head of the Lega Nord which they invented, and is determined to propel support for that party of supposedly Northern pride and separatism onto the national stage. At least in the intentions of voters, he is succeeding, as the most recent opinion polls show. And at a rally in Rome Feb. 28 as many as 50,000 supporters turned out.
