Tronti elected on PD ticket in Lombardy

Does anyone have any links or news on Tronti's election on the Democratic Party ticket? Better yet any analysis or debates?
cheers

Analysis: he's had shit politics for decades, didn't he stick with the PCI all through the 70s when it was busy suppressing the class struggle?

No doubt he's got some profound sounding reason for his latest manouvre but opportunists usually do.

I think, Tronti is a good (sad) example of someone where entryism went horribly wrong

What seriously? I thought like the other workerists he his whole politics depended on his break with the PCI in the early 1960s and the founding of Red Notebooks and eventually Classe Operaia.

Is there any reading material about his turn to electoral politics and entryism?

yes, he did that for five to ten years and then he went back to the party. that was even before 68. tbh tronti (like most of the operaist theorists) never gave up the idea that a party is needed and for him that was the PCI.

there is also a bunch of former Potere Operaio members who ended on the right or far right of Italian politics e.g. Gaetano Pecorella, famous radical defense lawyer who became a Forza Italia MP or worse, Valerio Morucci, who lead the illegal apparatus of PO, than joined the Red Brigades, became pentiti and is today writing for a "geopolitical journal" and gives talks at CasaPound
