Forza Italia und PDS als zentrale Akteure des italienischen Parteiensystems
Schlagworte:Italien, PDS, Parteien, Forza Italia, Berlusconi
The Partita Democratico della Sinistra (PDS) and Forza Italia are the main actors of the Italian party system. Compared to the slow development of political culture of the PCI and its organizationaland social change, the rapid rise of Berlusconi's Forza Italia is characterized as a polyform structure. The hegemony of the Right is not only due to the power of the media but is also an expression of the structural and cultural changes in capitalist states in general and specific Italian factors. Forza Italia represents a modern version of the 'privatization of politics' and is a substitute for a non-existent conservative party.
