With Italian politics in turmoil, we publish here a recent article by Roberto Sarti of the Italian Marxists "Falce Martello" who explains the economic, social, and political background to this current turbulent period of crisis. Although written before the recent rebellion against Silvio Berculoni by MPs in his own party and the latest vote in favour of the ruling "grand coalition", the article provides a thorough analysis of the deep instability that exists within Italian politics due to the ongoing economic crisis and its social impacts.
