    The German elections were expected to be a potentially destabilising factor for the entire EU. This was due both to the certainty of the end of the Merkel era, after 16 years of uninterrupted Chancellorship, and to the uncertainty around the outcome, given the swinging polls in the months preceding the elections. However, Germany’s political system has proved to be resilient. The ongoing negotiations for the formation of a new government promise to leave Berlin in the driver’s seat of European integration. That’s good news for Italy, as long as Germany engages with willing and able member states besides France and raise the bar on foreign policy matters.
