The discussion on the Presidential system has frequently drawn the attention of politicians and political experts who refer to existing models (Usa, South and Central America, V Republic in France, etc.). In Italy too there has been an amount of discussion, noble as well as trivial. Particularly, the Right Wing world (sometimes, even some people from the Left) advocated an authoritative and elitist Presidential system, as opposed to and in contrast with the shortcomings of representative democracy, the power of the masses and the traditional political party organisation. The national Right and Silvio Berlusconi were surely inspired by this Presidential system, once created by Peron’s Populism and now by the pseudo-liberal despotism of contemporary politicians, when - in spring 2013 - they suddenly advocated an Italian "presidentialism" [Presidential system], corrected by the ties of democracy and by the binding force of the law.
