In Italy, 2016 was meant to be the year of the “great reform,” a constitutional
revision that would have concluded the never-ending transition
from “First” to “Second” Republic, a long process involving
several transformations in the electoral system and party system since
the 1990s. It did not turn out this way. Instead, the Renzi-Boschi law
for constitutional revision, which started its parliamentary procedure
in April 2014 and saw its final reading in the Chamber of Deputies in
April 2016, was eventually rejected by voters in a confirmative referendum
held on 4 December.
