Paolo Gentiloni becomes Italy's prime minister, pledges to form new government

Paolo Gentiloni, Italy's foreign minister, was chosen to become prime minister and pledged to form a new government as the nation faces a banking crisis.

Sergio Mattarella, Italy's president, summoned Gentiloni to the Quirinal palace in central Rome, and asked him to replace Matteo Renzi.

Gentiloni, 62, told reporters he accepted the mandate "with great honor and responsibility." The parliament then can give a vote of confidence on the new government.

"I am aware of the urgent need to give Italy a government with full powers," he said.

He told reporters he soon will return to Mattarella with a list of ministers.
