Nearly 2 months after the election, Italy is getting a new Prime Minister.
After a tumultuous series of negotiations, the details of which are too arcane for anyone to care about, liberal Enrico Letta has been selected by the President to try to form a new government.
He’s not officially the PM yet, but he will be, as he seems to have the blessing of both parties.
Anyway! He’s already making waves, by taking on Europe’s austerity obsession.
