The basic element of popolo della liberta also has meaning beyond italy
This weekend, the italian minister prosident silvio berlusconi created a new party mab-tailored party, popolo della liberta. It is an association of berlusconis previous party forza italia and the post-fascist allanza nazionale, which has already traversed in the last week.

With the focus of a gross legal party, the italian minister prosident has once again enforced. For many years he has worked at this party primary. His goal was to form the right electoral court casa della liberta, so the house of freedom to form a piercing party under his leadership.
But for a long time, not only the right christian democrats and the separatist lega nord opposed against the tarpaulin in which they saw a self-presentation. They remain independent after the party founding. However, their influence was now allowed to be streamed by the rough legal party. For the postpathers who did not want to be solazed for a long time have completed a sweeping past last year. They ran at the last italian parliamentary elections with forza italia on a common ballot list. Particular party feet gianfranco fini was on the pages of the postcards the driving force at the association. It is important to him, with the shelter under the umbrella of popolo della liberta, to complete the transformation of a neofascist into a legal conservative party. Some party members have gone to this conversion too fast.
But fini will also be said to be personal interests with his rough commitment for the partial purpose. He makes hopes to become a member of berlusconi’s successor as a party and perhaps italian head of government. But the currently does not think about the assignment. Since his third victory at the italian parliamentary elections, he has spent more local elections in italy (rome: burgermeister with brown past). In addition, the minister prosident is currently hardly about the opposition. Because the different factions of the italian leftists are still mainly busy with themselves. Both at the communist rifondazione who is no longer represented in parliament after the election, as in the social democratic partito democrato, there are internal differences. In addition, the latter must knock around with corruption. While berlusconi wanted to create a counterweight against the left with a rough legal party a few years ago, a gross legal party is a fragmented, partially oriented left opposite.
Fini as a respectable face of the party
Particular focus makes clear the rapid change of the political coordinate system that italy has passed through in the last 20 years. By the beginning of the 1990s, the neofascist as a right grubbing child had to be built outside of the committal arc with which no one wanted to play by the other parties and could. Only berlusconi gave access to the party via the alliance "casa della popollo".
In the current party principle, the past of allanza nazionale is no longer a problem. On the contrary, the party is considered within the new legal party as a managed force and fini as the respectable face of the new party, as the italian correspondent of the taz formulated in an article. Unlike fini berlusconi and many of his party friends from the forza italia have no problems to discover also on mussolini fascism respectable pages, to rush against escapeons and to refute anti-fascism as preliminary. In addition, berlusconi has no problems with politicians to take a covenant to whom the allanza nazionale was too much in the middle. Around the mussolini granddaughter and activists of different small groups in the right spectrum.
Export model allanza nazionale?
Various legal formations in european countries will be observed with interest in how fast the italian neofaschists have become a governmental force. However, among the right differences, there is the question of whether the allanza nazionale has adapted too strong and whether such a price was upgrade. Right parties such as the fpo in austria of the vlaams belgium in belgium could certainly take the allanza nazionale as a model to come out of their image of the schmuddelkinde. Also in various eastern european countries, legal formations, enhanced by the economic crisis, were able to influence influence.
Already the right party principle in italy influences abroad. After the popolo della liberta wants to become part of the conservative covenant of the european folk parties in the brussel europa parliament after the european elections. In this bundy, the german christian democrats play a central role. You will hardly put on a veto, on the other hand, if italian postpathers and legal populists want to stobble. Finally, the increase was helped with the fact that the epp’s strongest faction in the european parliament, which guarantees rough influence on the items of the parliamentary language and the rejects. A creeping right shift is then accepted.
