Italian Senate to vote on own demise in coup for PM Renzi

Senators are expected to vote to cut their own number from 315 to 100 and effectively end their ability to bring down the government — a safeguard put in place after World War II to prevent the return of fascism. “It’s a great victory for Matteo Renzi… it will show Italy and Europe that he is able to reform an irreformable country,” Roberto D’Alimonte, political science professor at Rome’s Luiss University, told AFP.
