The Historical Reasons behind Italy’s Instability by Giulio Sapelli

Authors: Giulio Sapelli (Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei)
Type: Book
Published in: IEMed Mediterranean Yearbook 2017, 176-179

Nowadays, the fast-shifting international order explicitly reveals the fact that North America’s security and financial dominance export model has encountered serious military and diplomatic defeats in recent years and left Italy exposed to an increasingly crucial dependency on external agencies.
