John Cabot University President Franco Pavoncello was recently interviewed by the Financial Times about the deep divisions within Italy’s right-wing alliance ahead of the upcoming general elections. The latest clash is over President Donald Trump’s imposition of new tariffs. While center-right leader Silvio Berlusconi criticized US trade policy in Davos this week, Northern League head Matteo Salvini disagreed and sided with Trump.

A leading analyst of Italian politics, Dr. Pavoncello’s work has appeared in, among others, the American Political Science Review, the British Journal of Political Science, Asian Studies, and World Affairs. He is also a well-known media commentator on Italian affairs, a contributor to major international newspapers such as the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune, and he appears regularly on radio and television networks including CNN, BBC, Reuters Press and TV, and many other media organizations.
