Democratic Party, PD, leader Pierluigi Bersani walks past a courassier presidential guard after talks with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano on the formation of a new government, in Rome's Quirinale presidential palace, Thursday, March 21, 2013. Fresh elections could soon be called if President Napolitano, after consultations on Wednesday and Thursday, decides no one can muster a reliable enough majority in Parliament to enact the economic and electoral reforms needed to pull Italy out of recession and improve future prospects for stable governments.
