Giorgia Meloni and the Shift to the Right in Italy: An Analysis Five Months After the Election

The article analyzes the performance of Italyʼs Prime Minister, Giorgia Meloni, leader of the Fratelli dʼItalia party, after five months in office. The countryʼs critical attitude towards Europe and the desire for a strong leader reflect a general trend of conservative and authoritarian nostalgia throughout Europe. Ethno-nationalism, anti-liberal Catholicism, resentment against politicians, and anti-capitalism shape the decisions of many voters. Despite all the misgivings, Italy remains a parliamentary democracy with stable institutions, and Meloniʼs victory is a continuation of the long-standing shift within the center-right coalition, not a historical break or conservative-nationalist repositioning.
