Silvio Berlusconi getting involved could radicalise everything. It's already looking like a lively campaign full of anti-European and populist slogans above all from the Northern League, and Pepe Grillo's Five Star movement.

Although with the Hollande presidency we can no longer speak of the Paris-Berlin axis, this summit proves once again that an agreement between the two capitals is necessary if we want to find a solution to the eurozone's crisis and a common European approach to big international crises.feedback
