Matteo Renzi is an Italian politician who served as the Prime Minister of Italy from February 2014 until December 2016.

At the age of 39, Matteo Renzi was the youngest person to have served as Italian Prime Minister and was at the time the youngest leader in the G7.

Before becoming Prime Minister Matteo Renzi was the President of the Province of Florence and the Mayor of Florence from 2009 to 1014.

In 2014, the American magazine Fortune ranked Renzi as the third most influential person under 40 in the world, and Foreign Policy listed him as one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers. Moreover, Renzi is nicknamed il Rottamatore (the Scrapper) due to his ambition of renovating the Italian political establishment. Renzi, who did not hold a seat in either house of Parliament during his tenure as Prime Minister, became a member of the Senate as a result of the 2018 general election. Following the 2018 election, Renzi announced his resignation as Secretary of the Democratic Party, effective 12 March 2018 in order to create a new party called Italia Viva.

While in power, Renzi’s government implemented numerous reforms, including changes to the electoral system, a relaxation of labor and employment and employment laws with the intention of boosting economic growth, a thorough reformation of the public administration, the simplification of civil trials and the abolition of many small taxes.
