The thirty-nine-year-old mayor of Florence is on his way to becoming Italy's youngest-ever prime minister. Matteo Renzi received a mandate from Italian President Giorgio Napolitano on Monday to form a new government after Enrico Letta stepped down as prime minister on Friday. Letta was ousted by his own Democratic Party, which called on Renzi to fill the post. Renzi, a highly popular figure within the party, has laid out an ambitious plan to revitalize the Italian economy. Renzi was never elected as a member of parliament and will now have to have his nomination confirmed by the president before he is sworn in as prime minister, which could happen as early as Thursday.
