The government led by Matteo Renzi has generated, also in 2015, contrasting reactions. On the one hand, it has completed a series of reforms that are deemed crucial for economic recovery – e.g. labor market, bank system, school, public administration, electoral law – and with the Milan Expo the country's image abroad has been revitalized. On the other hand, it has been criticized not only for the contents but also, and especially, for the method used to pass such reforms, in particular the use of diverse majorities depending on the decisions to be taken, the refusal of mediation with the various social categories, and the strong centralization in the Presidency of the Council. We must recognize, however, that the government, despite various types of resistance domestically and a number of external constraints, has managed to impose its agenda, at least at the national level. This was not the case at the international level, where, in crucial issues such as the fight against terrorism, the migration crisis, and fiscal austerity, Italy has often played a marginal role.
