At first glance, a pro-EU government led by the former President of the European Central Bank would appear a poor fit for a Eurosceptic party. Yet this has not stopped Matteo Salvini’s League from endorsing Mario Draghi’s new Italian government. Giovanni de Ghantuz Cubbe argues that while the League’s support for Draghi may seem a curious turn of events given Salvini’s long history of Euroscepticism, it is in keeping with the ambiguous relationship the party has had with Europe since the 1990s.
