Italy has a new prime minister, again. And this one is the youngest in the country's history.
Thirty-nine-year-old Matteo Renzi was sworn in Saturday. The BBC reports Renzi has never worked in national government but gained notoriety as the mayor of Florence.
Time calls Renzi the "Italian Obama" and adds he's the country's third prime minister in just the last year. Renzi's predecessor, Enrico Letta, resigned last week after just 10 months in office.
