For 16 successive years, the impressive Italian Linacre Society has organised a Linacre Lecture in Italy.  This year, they opted for a new format; the 2015 Oxford-style debates on the UK and Europe, held in Florence, were informative and entertaining.  We warmly thank Professors Maurizio Lupoi and Sabrina Bruno for their detailed organisation, and the four debaters: Professor Giacomo Vaciago; Dr Nick Brown; Professor Carlo Mortara; Professor Patricia Springborg, for a spirited debate on this topical subject.
