The Italian general elections held on March 4th didn´t result in a clear majority. More than a month later, ongoing negotiations to form a government are arduous. Even if an agreement is reached, several experts predict it will result in a hung parliament.

La Pietra Dialogues will bring distinguished political experts and actors together at NYU Florence to analyze the election and its outcome, as well as to explore the possible implications for the future of Italy and the European Union
