A couple of months ago the general election in Italy saw the far-right Fratelli d’Italia party win the biggest share of the votes. Meanwhile, the world is in a state of “permacrisis” – climate change, the Ukraine war, cost of living and inflation, political radicalisation, etc. The question is, What is the political and economic outlook for Italy and the wider world as we head into winter (literally and metaphorically)?
