Another electoral campaign is about to finish, and another occasion for talking about Europe has been wasted. The possibility of holding a true international debate was turned into the usual, local political arena. And the European Elections have been exploited just in terms of testing Italian parties and their hold in view of the next national elections. Thus, the European Union was seen as the usual, far, incomprehensible chimera, evoked as a dream to realise – who knows when, who knows how – or as a nightmare to destroy, immediately.
