Italian term or phrase: buonismo
non credo che il termine buonismo abbia bisogno di ulteriori spiegazioni, ma comunque significa ipocritamente buono, buono a tutti i costi sino al punto di diventare fastidioso, bontà eccessiva e spesso fuori luogo che diventa fastidiosa.

"buonismo"
Explanation:
Lascerei il termine in italiano, fra virgolette, seguito da una spiegazione fra parentesi o da una nota.
Vedi, ad esempio:
"The current government, so badly divided that it has not yet agreed on a
candidate for the elections, is painted by Mr. Berlusconi and others as
ineffectual and infected by "buonismo," an Italian word that suggests
bleeding-heart liberalism."
