    Mario Monti has been sworn in as Italy's prime minister, shortly after he announced a new government to deal with the crisis that has brought the country to the brink of economic disaster and endangered the entire eurozone.

    No politicians have been included in the new administration, which is comprised of technocrats, and Monti himself will take charge of the crucial finance portfolio.
