Italy’s Prime Minister-designate Mario Monti meets the journalists at the Senate, in Rome, Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2011. Monti says he is ready to present his new government to the president on Wednesday after winning wide backing from political, business and union leaders. Monti expressed his “serenity” and “conviction” in Italy’s ability to overcome the difficult phase. He told reporters Tuesday evening that he had received assurances from various parties that they would endure sacrifices for the greater good of the country. The economics professor tapped to head Italy’s next government has been holding intense talks for two days, seeking support for his mission to steer the eurozone’s third-largest economy through its debt crisis.
