The Italian Aha Moment
Italians were called to the ballot box to give their verdict on three crucial government policies: first they had the opportunity to repeal the famous "legitimate impediment" – the law that gave Berlusconi automatic immunity from trial proceedings (already partially revoked by the constitutional court). Second, they had the chance to stop another controversial reform brought in by Berlusconi’s government: water privatisation. Finally, they were able to vote against Berlusconi’s energy policy, which bucks the current European trend in proposing the construction of nuclear plants in high-risk seismic Italy.
Using Oprah’s lexicon, I think this is Italian Aha moment, when Italian finally say no to Berslusconi.
