In one of the single-member constituencies of Rome for the Senate, a direct challenge could arise between the two former allies, Emma Bonino (in the center-left coalition together with the Democratic Party) e Carlo Calenda, Action leader who runs together with Matteo Renzi. The college would be Lazio Uninominale 02, which includes many territories including the center of Rome, Testaccio and Parioli. In the lists of the PD to date it appears designated to the “coalition” and the recipient should be Bonino.
The president of Forza Italia Silvio Berlusconi will be a candidate for the Senate in the single-member constituency of ‘his’ Monzacity where he led the football team to conquer the Serie A. This in addition to the nominations as leaders, which should be in five regions.
Instead, it will be leaders in the Senate in the proportional to Milan (and probably Monza) Matteo Renzi for the Action-Italia Viva list. While in the proportional to the Chamber Mariastella Gelmini could be leaders in Milan or Brescia. In Milan, the deputy Enrico Costa could contend with her for the first place. And the unknown factor remains of the possible candidacy of former mayor Gabriele Albertini.
