There is a map of Rome circulating since Monday morning, when the actual data of the Roman polls began to flow and compilation started. That map shows the latest evolution of an ongoing trend almost 30 years in the making.
It is a puzzle composed of 15 pieces of the Capitoline municipalities. There are red pieces, won by the PD [Democratic Party]: These correspond to the municipalities of the historical center and San Lorenzo and Parioli, where the party of Renzi and Giachetti enjoys a relative majority.
The two pieces are literally encircled by yellow pieces. These are the municipalities where the Movement won, often beating the Democratic Party and sometimes Giorgia Meloni. The era when each new suburb was dominated by the Left has passed. But such a steep fall is unprecedented. It deepens the identity crisis of the Roman PD and draws a rather precise composition of the vote.
Starting from Ostia, the city hall dissolved by Capital Mafia, where Virginia Raggi got 44 percent of the vote and passing through Tor Bella Monaca, where the Five Star Movement won 41.04 percent.
