In Italy, the Republican-like coalition, guided by Silvio Berlusconi, has won the Election.

Small italian parties has disappeared, and now in the political arena there are only two very big players:

"Pdl" (Partito delle LibertĂ ) Republicans and Democratics leaded by "Pd" (Partito Democratico).

Veltroni, the Democratic leader repeat often the claim made by the Economist in July 2003, that Berlusconi was "unfit to govern."

I agree with the Economist, and I am very sad for what is happening in Italy.
