Abstract

This article, published in the run-up to a constitutional referendum held in Italy on 4 December 2016, analyses the impact of the election of Donald Trump to the American presidency on the unfolding referendum campaign in Italy. It argues that it has made Matteo Renzi's attempt to get Italians to vote for the reform more difficult, as well as creating a situation of potential crisis if the vote goes against the reform and he resigns as Prime Minister as he has promised to do if defeated.
