Italy: Corruption scandal rocks the country before the European elections

Italy: Corruption scandal rocks the country before the European elections

Italy in turmoil: Regional President Giovanni Toti has apparently built a system of intelligence, power and corruption. He is now under investigation. And the Italians ask themselves: Didn’t all of this happen before?

It was 30 years ago when old Italy collapsed. The Italy of corruption, nepotism, that of fraud and false papers. Parties collapsed back then, but hope emerged. To a new, a clean, a country of integrity. “Mani Pulite” – clean hands – was the name given to the judges who had spent years combing through the system and sweeping up the dirt.

Today fear is growing again south of the Alps: Is the old Italy on the verge of a resurrection? Does it return, no, worse still: Was it never gone?
