Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
5* has defined itself by the reject of "politics as usual" and most career politicians of past governments, including Matteo Renzi. PD is pro-austerity, 5* is anti-austerity; PD is relatively liberal on immigration, 5* is closer to Salvini in that regard; PD is dye-in-the-wool parliamentary democracy, 5* leans towards "direct democracy" via their Rousseau platform.

They hate each other. The only thing they have in common for now is their fear of Salvini's Lega eating their lunch if new elections are called now. Not the foundations of a solid and long lasting coalition.
