Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi is expected to be offered the chance to become Italian prime minister, as talks begin on forming a new government.



President Georgio Napolitano is starting consultations following the resignation of Enrico Letta.



He was ousted in a vote called by Renzi at a meeting of their centre-left Democratic Party.



The 39-year-old would be Italy's youngest prime minister.



Letta was under increasing pressure over Italy's poor economic performance.
