What you should know: Enrico Letta was Italian prime minister for just 10 months, from April 2013 to February 2014, when he was ousted after losing an internal battle within his centre-left Democratic party. Letta led a "big coalition" (grande coalizione) with the centre-left Democratic party, the centre-right People of Freedom and the centrist Civic Choice. After an arm wrestling match with Matteo Renzi, called "the rottamatore" ("the demolition man"), Letta resigned as prime minister. Letta has announced his resignation from the Italian parliament to become dean of the International Affairs school at the elite Sciences Po university in Paris, and released a book in Italy called “Going together, Going Far” on his time in office.
