The Five Star Movement (M5S in Italian) in Italy was started by Beppe Grillo, a popular comedian and blogger... and Gianroberto Casaleggio, a web strategist, on 4th October 2009. According to members of M5S, it is not a political party but a "movement". The movement is to bring about access to public water, sustainable transport, sustainable development, right to Internet access, and environmentalism in Italy. The movement believes in "zero-cost politics", degrowth of a nation against standard economic growth, nonviolence, and no military interventions by the Western countries (the USA and European nations) in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria. By winning the elections'>elections, the Five Star Movement has become the single most popular political force in Italy. Turin has always been a city with two classes, one the working class, and the other was the aristocratic class. Turin has some of the most elegant city centers on one hand, and the shabbiest of suburbs on the other hand. The two faces of Turin have seen a lot in the last few decades. Its history has been quite messed up by many political ideologies. There used to be a lot of violence in its suburbs and the city has been undergoing a political change for the last two decades now. Five Star exploited the concept of the two Turins. One of its significant moments was when it released a silent video, the night before the vote where it promised to reunite the two Turin.
