Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi won in a landslide the European elections unexpectedly getting more than 40 percent of the votes, a result only achieved by the Christian Democratic Party in the Fifties.
Mr Renzi’s main competitor, Mr Beppe Grillo of the Five Stars Movement, got only 21 percent, with voters probably disliking some of his controversial statements. Between other things, Mr Grillo claimed to be “beyond Hitler”.
Mr Berlusconi, despite having being allowed by the Court to campaign, got only 16 percent.
Mr Renzi is today not only the King of Italy, but also the Emperor of Europe, being the only pro-EU leader able to reach a really good result.
