Italy's president asked the brash young leader of the Democratic Party, Matteo Renzi, to try to form a government Monday after Renzi engineered the sacking of the previous premier in a power grab within their party.
Florence's mayor is defending his city's ownership of Michelangelo's marble masterpiece "David" after the Culture Ministry reportedly asserted that the treasure belongs to the central government in Rome.
Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi said this weekend that the statue, along with other treasures, was ceded to the city of Florence by a decree in 1870 or 1871 when the capital was transferred to Rome.
"This government is federalist when it comes to spending, and centralist when it is time to cash in," Renzi said.
