Simple solution to Italy’s political stalemate: Change to the American system of voting and government, where winner takes all, where the winning party begins to govern right away and does not have to first form a coalition with its adversaries, and practically reverse itself on most of its issues, then govern in fear of losing your coalition partners at some point during its tenure.
This fractious, unstable and impractical system of parliamentary coalition governance is simply untenable, in spite of the few advantages of forming a coalition government.
