The Gentiloni Cabinet, led by Paolo Gentiloni, was the 64th cabinet of the Italian Republic.

The government, in office from 12 December 2016 to 1 June 2018, was led by Gentiloni's Democratic Party (PD). It originally included the New Centre-Right (NCD) and the Centrists for Europe (CpE) as junior partners, and also included non-party independents. The NCD was later folded into Popular Alternative (AP).

Background and formation[edit]

On 7 December 2016, Prime Minister Matteo Renzi announced his resignation, following the rejection of his proposals to overhaul the Senate in the 2016 constitutional referendum. A few days later, on 11 December 2016, President Sergio Mattarella asked Paolo Gentiloni, then Minister of Foreign Affairs, to form a new government.[1][1] On the following day Gentiloni was officially sworn in as the new head of the government.[2]

Gentiloni formed a coalition government supported by his own Democratic Party, the New Centre-Right and the Centrists for Italy. This was the same majority which supported Renzi's government for almost three years.[3] The centrist Liberal Popular Alliance, led by Denis Verdini, did not support the new cabinet, because no party member was appointed minister.[4] Deputy ministers of the Italian Socialist Party and Solidary Democracy were also appointed. After the split of the Democratic and Progressive Movement from the Democratic Party, that party was presented by one deputy minister in the government until 3 October 2017.
