Millions of Italians will vote on Sunday in an election that is forecast to return the country's most right-wing government since World War Two and usher in its first woman prime minister.

Italy's first autumn national election in more than a century was triggered by party infighting that brought down Prime Minister Mario Draghi's broad national unity government in July.

With a polls blackout in force in the two weeks before the election, there is still scope for a surprise. A late surge by 5-Star could jeopardise the rightist alliance's chances of winning a majority in the Senate or upper house, complicating the process of forming a government. The outcome of the vote will also be watched nervously in European capitals and on financial markets.

Hélas.. Encore un boulevard pour le fascisme.. Italie 🇮🇹 : il faut dire que c’est un peu dans l’ADN du peuple italien..

Italy is lost.

One of their candidates praised Hitler as 'a great statesman' and said 'I'm with Vladimir Putin.' These right-wing populists are fascists with better marketing and snazzier campaign materials. They promise 'moderation' (wink-wink) while harkening back to Mussolini. Et tu Italia?
