Italy had once a vision. In the early 50’s the country was in the front-line of the promotion of the European project. Today the mindset is totally different. Europe is seen not as precious and key as before, and sovereignism is the new leading-spirit of the nation. Italy contributed to create the European Union, but is not keeping the promise of a better continent. Once funding father, Italy is today lost in Europe. First founder, then lost. “Lost and founders” is a word-game, behind which is the desire of informing about the Italian sentiments. This blog represents the continuation of euelectionsitaly.
