Italy's election campaign reads much like a police blotter, chronicling a country whose politics lately have been increasingly nasty, divisive and even violent.Prospects are high for weeks, even months, of more political tensions after the vote, with backroom party maneuvering quite possibly producing a crisis-prone, short-lived government with limited chances of making headway on Italy's economic and social issues.The far-right Forza Nuova, whose leader unabashedly describes himself as fascist, is among the smaller parties running candidates.If opinion polls prove accurate, voters won't reward any one party or coalition with enough votes to yield the parliamentary majority needed to sustain a viable government.Italian law forbids publishing opinion poll results in the last 15 days before an election. A smaller campaign partner is Brothers of Italy, a party with neo-fascist roots.In Italy, there are 46.6 million people eligible to vote for the lower Chamber of Deputies, and 42.9 million for the Senate.
