World Policy On Air, Ep. 39: "China Slips Quietly Into Italy... and Europe"

World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.

In the midst of economic struggle and societal disorder, Italy finds itself vulnerable to foreign interests looking to take advantage of European markets. China’s emergence as Italy’s leading investor is probed by Francesco Galietti, a former advisor to the Italian Minister of Finance. He details China’s subtle entrance into Italian manufacturing and power companies, which is driving a wedge through the Italian political elite. He then argues this increasingly strong bond between the industrial powerhouse of Asia and Italy’s own role as a gateway to the Mediterranean signifies the creation of a new Silk Road, woven by soft power and a thirst for the sort of cultural cache Italy still produces in abundance.
