Italian President Napolitano has failed in his latest efforts to try to break the country's political deadlock. On Thursday the center-left alliance that won February's election said it couldn't form a government.
The rise of anti-establishment parties in Italy has profoundly transformed Italian politics in just a decade. Now, with a second attempt at forming a government, the future is unclear. Megan Williams reports from Rome.
Italy's president says the country will need to hold a fresh vote if bickering political parties cannot work together. Negotiations to form a government have been deadlocked since an inconclusive election in March.
Italy's would-be coalition partners need more time to thrash out a government deal. Based on the 5-Star Movement's rule in Parma, locals have little hope for success on a national level, as Megan Williams discovered.
Months after inconclusive elections, Italy is still without a government. The left-wing M5S has offered to form a coalition with the League. But the far-right party refuses to ditch its alliance with Silvio Berlusconi.
