Context Live: The Italian Election of 2022
Join us for a free event discussing the implications of the recent Italian election with local historian Richard Bowen.
October 25, 1pm EST on Zoom
A Free Interactive Discussion with a Historian
Listen in, submit questions, and let a British historian and Rome resident Richard Bowen explain an on-the-ground perspective on Meloni's victory.
Richard Bowen will be discussing:
• How the Italian political system differs from to other Western democracies.
• What are the trends in the recent history of Italian political leadership?
The result of the Italian election and its possible implications
•How might Meloni and her coalition shift Italy’s policies, culture, and relationship with the result of Europe?
• What is the deeper story behind the surface level press narrative about Meloni?
Originally from England, Richard has lived in Rome for the last fourteen years. He holds a Master's degree in medieval and twentieth-century history from London University. With his years of experience in Rome and across Europe, he brings a cosmopolitan, broad-minded, and synthetic approach to understanding Italy.
