Rome: Leftist moderate Enrico Letta was formally sworn in on Sunday as Italy's new prime minister at the head of a coalition cabinet at a ceremony lead by President Giorgio Napolitano.

The cabinet's 21 ministerial posts have gone to a mix of experts and institutional figures from across the political spectrum to form a "grand coalition" which brings to an end a damaging political deadlock left by inconclusive elections.
