Italy has experienced several reforms since the early 1990s, but root-and-branch reform has not been achieved, despite its perceived need. Furthermore, the methods to achieve such reform have been exhausted. The combination of the failure of substance and method has led to a shift in the institutional reform debate which is illustrated best in the dilemmas currently confronting the Democratic Party (PD) with respect to the issue. Institutional reform is unlikely, therefore, to be achieved in this legislature.
