It’s true, we Italians are good at improvising, and during uncertain times our creativity comes out, but as even Francesco Rotondi highlighted in his article published on the Economist on May 7th, at the moment those who govern our country seem to lack a strategic vision, an organizational vision, and a system vision, and in my opinion we risk facing a pop quiz in the classroom without ever having opened the textbook, hoping that someone will pass us the answers from under the desk, we could have a stroke of luck or a sudden breakthrough, but the risk of failing is quite high.
