Sex, scandal and scoops: Meet Italy’s Matt Drudge – POLITICO

ROME — For Roberto D’Agostino, Italy’s upcoming election is going to be a bit “like sex often is.”

“The foreplay, namely the campaign, is far more exciting than the climax, namely the actual outcome of the vote,” said the owner and hands-on editor of Dagospia — Italy’s most eye catching and controversial web publication.

It’s a flippant aside. But it captures — in crude vernacular — an undercurrent of elite opinion regarding the upcoming parliamentary election on March 4: That for all the politics and promises of the electoral campaign, the outcome is unlikely to provide the country with a stable government, much less resolve any of its well-known problems.
