Gridlock (Continued from different, almost antipodal premises, both Berlusconi and Grillo based their elec- toral rhetoric on widespread mistrust and disappoint- ment for the German-led European Union and the Euro which many (whether rightfully so or not) consider the main culprits of their economic hardships. They blame the rigor policies that being part of that system requires and that Monti so zealously implemented. In fact during his "technical" Page 1) (Monti was appointed, not elected) one-year govern- ment, Italy recovered most of its lost international cred- ibility, at the cost, however, of a general impoverish- ment of its citizens. As a result, the parlia- ment stemmed from last weekend's vote actually has more than half of its mem- bers who belong to political forces that in various shapes, forms and with dif- ferent levels of intensity, have publicly questioned or  Come Celebrate the Induction of JOSEPH ANDR UZZI Former New England Patriots Player SEAN STELLA TO Former Professional Football Player / current Sports Agent into the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame Massachusetts Chapter and 2013 Man of the Year FRANK PRIVITERA at the Induction and Scholarship Award Dinner Saturday, March 9, 2013 Venezia - Boston, Massachusetts Cocktail Reception - 7:00p.m. Dinner - 8:00p.m. Donation $99.00 per person For tickets or further information call Pam ...... 781-956-7441 disowned altogether Italy's belonging to the euro zone {to the point, in Grillo's case, of calling for a referendum on the common currency). Not only the country was a founding member of the Union, but it is currently its second largest manufactur- ing economy (after Germany) and the third largest alto- gether. No wonder stock markets in Europe and around the world are throw- ing a fit. Now, according to the Con- stitution, President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano, at 85 years of age and near the end of his mandate, has the daunting task of desig- nating the most likely party leader to form a majority able to support some kind of stable government. Need- less to say, he has to do it quickly, as the longer the uncertainty lasts the worse it is for the economy. Who- ever that leader will be (probably Bersani at this point) has two difficult aisles to reach across; one be- tween him and a party with diametrically opposed views on just about anything, and another between him and a movement that never hid its intention of sending politi- cians as their main slogan says "tutti a casa" (every- body home). Unfortunately, the only easy aisle to cross, the one leading to Monti, and his meager dowry of 18 sena- tors, is also irrelevant. ii UNTIL JUL 14 [ RISD Museum, Providence.
