On Europe, for example, where this isn't at all clear. As we've noted, Grillo himself has been very critical of the euro in the past, and toyed with the idea of a return to the Lira - although he is now keen to point out that he never explicitly said that Italy should leave the euro. But his party might be a different matter.
Italian Professor Mauro Gallegati, who is considered one of Beppe Grillo's closest economic advisors and one of the people responsible for writing the party's economic policies, said in an interview with today's Corriere della Sera,
[Italy's euro exit] would be dramatic, an absurd mistake which would reduce Italians' income by 30-40%. If anything, what's needed in Europe is a real political union, as in the US, with a central bank which can devalue the currency.In other words, the Five-Star Movement can't quite be described as an 'anti-euro party' (as we've said before, see here and here). In fact, 'Europe' doesn't even feature in its manifesto. And remember, the Five-Star Movement is a very fluid construction - what Grillo says in public, or writes on his blog, doesn't automatically translates into 'party policy'. What we do know is that the party is definitely anti-austerity, which inevitably brings it into 'Europe territory'.
