Italian election — Pipeline problems — EU ambassador to US

We discuss the implications of Italy's election last weekend and what its probable next prime minister, Giorgia Meloni, could mean for Europe. Our special guest is Stavros Lambrinidis, the EU's ambassador to the United States.

POLITICO's Suzanne Lynch and our team covering Italy's election on Sunday, Jacopo Barigazzi in Brussels and Hannah Roberts in Rome, break down all you need to know about Giorgia Meloni, leader of the far-right Brothers of Italy party and presumed next prime minister. We also dig into how Brussels and other European capitals are reacting to the election of Italy's most right-wing government since World War II.

Jacopo also shares the reaction in Brussels to the damage to the Nord Stream gas pipelines and what might be the EU's next move.

And our special guest is Stavros Lambrinidis, the EU's ambassador to the United States. He speaks to POLITICO's Lili Bayer in Washington, about Russia's war in Ukraine, Europe's energy crisis, the U.S. mid-term elections and relations between Washington and Brussels.
