Abstract: Beppe Grillo’s Five Star Movement. Organisation, Communication and Ideology Filippo Tronconi, (ed), Beppe Grillo’s Five Star Movement. Organisation, Communication and Ideology, Abingdon: Routledge, 2015; xiii + 237 pp.: ISBN 9781472436634, £67.99 (hbk), 9781315569062, £24.49 (eBook) The emergence of the Five Star Movement (MoVimento 5 Stelle: M5S) at the 2013 Italian general elections still represents the most surprising electoral success in post-1945 Europe. Officially founded in 2009, it first gained support at the local and regional levels in May 2012, and just a few months later became the leading political party in Sicily (pp. 1–3). In the same year, polls signalled its increasing success as the second most popular party nationally. A few months later, in February 2013, the M5S surprised political commentators and gained 25.6% of the votes, emerging as the most popular political party in the general elections, and again increasing its success in 2018, with 32.7%.
