The political situation, at the moment, remains open: yesterday Pd and 5 Stelle supported the opportunity of a re-appointment to Giuseppe Conte; Italia viva did not mention names (nor vetoed), but emphasized the need for a written document, a time schedule. On the Courier service, today, three of the protagonists of the negotiations of these hours speak: the leader of Italia viva, Matteo Renzi (here the interview, where he indicates his conditions for reaching an agreement); Goffredo Bettini, one of the PD representatives closest to the secretary Nicola Zingaretti (his words here); Silvio Berlusconi, the founder of Forza Italia (interviewed here). As Roberto Gressi writes in his crisis barometer (found here), yesterday marks a step forward on the path of a Count ter (i.e. the third executive led by Conte), but there remains the possibility of an institutional executive, in the case in which there was not a square (programmatic: but also, necessarily, on the roles of government) between the parties that supported the Conte-bis. In this case, the head of state could entrust the task to personalities such as Marta Cartabia, president emeritus of the Constitutional Court, or Carlo Cottarelli, economist and former commissioner for the revision of public spending. To make the outcome of the crisis undecided (Fico has until Tuesday to report the outcome of his consultation work with the various parties to the head of state) are – in addition to Renzi’s requests – the internal fibrillations of the 5-star a patrol of senators (not a small one) seems ready to say no to the hypothesis of reforming a majority with Italy alive.
