Italie : un système de pouvoir en procès

Abstract : [Italy : a system of governance on trial] Andreotti's trial has revealed long standing links between Italian politicians and the mafia. Such a trial has become possible because of the conjunction of two relatively independent processes : first, the crystallisation - mainly through the antimafia parliamentary commissions - of a new interpretation of the mafia based upon its collusion with the political sphere ; second, the propagation of a new culture of activism in the judiciary. As a result, relations between politicians and the mafia have become a public issue. New debates have thus discredited the system of governance symbolized by Andreotti and at the same time have given more acceptance to an analysis of the Italian " First Republic " which stresses its hidden, dark face.
