5 years ago31 views

Italians have been reacting to Mario Monti's announcement that he will join the race in February's elections.

The outgoing prime minister said on Friday that he is ready to lead a centrist coalition.

It puts him in a three-way contest with the centre-left Democratic Party - and on the right, Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom party.
