CESENATICO, ITALY - 5 JANUARY 2020: A view of the floating nativity scene on the canal in the historical center of Cesenatico, Italy, on January 5th 2020.
After being ousted from government in September 2019, Matteo Salvini has made it a priority to campaign in all the Italian regions undergoing regional elections to demonstrate that, in power or not, he still commands considerable support.
The January 26th regional elections in Emilia Romagna, traditionally the home of the Italian left, has been targeted by Matteo Salvini as a catalyst for bringing down the government. A loss for the center-left Democratic Party (PD) against Mr Salvini’s right would strip the centre-left party of control of its symbolic heartland, and probably trigger a crisis in its coalition with the Five Star Movement.
