The inconclusive result of Sunday's Italian general election was not a surprise even if the size of the anti-establishment vote was shocking. Half of Italy, on the right as well as the left, voted against the political status quo.
In Italy, as in France, Holland even Germany, opposition to the EU and the euro is rising. It is not yet a critical political mass, though it may be closer in Italy than anywhere else. The speed of its ascent is remarkable.
