  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Populism; Constitutional Law and Populism; Parliamentary Form of Government; Gouvernement de Combat.

The author examines the formation of the government after the elections that took place on March 4th 2018 with the aim of verifying whether the Italian Constitutional Law has gone through relevant changes due to the behaviour of the winning parties, which proudly boast to be populists and which anyway are considered populists by many, and he wonders whether these changes, if there are any, are ascribable to the so called populism. A long and thourough analysis shows that a lot of the relevant changes took place at the political level, but none of these changes affected the constitutional rules.
