And the majority of Italians are tired of the broken promises and old-school politics. Like little shepherds they are looking for a star to guide them. We will see the result in the next few days. The challenges are great. ... But whatever happens, whoever wins, Italy's political sky remains pretty unclear. The experts say the government won't last long. So the post of Italian head of government will be occupied for only a short period. And perhaps by a false messiah."
