Disclosure: my vote traditionally is centre-left, i.e. PD, but stopped voting for national and local elections for reasons that I explained elsewhere.
Anyway, I still firmly remain:
_ centre-left (the Einaudi Foundation online test classified me as "liberale di sinistra")
_ neither belonging nor interested in being coopted by any local tribe- I have just membership of few non-political associations, and, if you ignore some "causes" organizations in the past, the only political association I was ever a member of was a European federalist integration advocacy.
This article is just a "stub" for a section that will start soon.
Actually, as I did while living in Brussels, was planning to re-register dirittodivoto.com, and do something similar to what I did back then (collect and compare political platforms across the spectrum).
Unfortunately, I saw that the domain has been taken over after I left it expire, and is currently owned by a "corporate website scavenger" (those who pick up expired websites and then put up a hefty pricetag): no, I am not going to spend 2888 USD to re-register that domain.
Anyway, stay tuned: as I did follow the local elections in Turin in 2016 (and, as I previously wrote, the national elections while in Brussels), I will post routinely articles.
While this stub is in English, those articles will be both in English and Italian, and will start soon.
PS on August 16th released a (beta) mini-webapp that allows to search via tag cloud and compare the political platform of the two main coalition (centre-right and the one around the PD), plus the main political party from the previous national elections, M5S- you can find it here, while the associated CSV dataset on Kaggle is here
