Rome (dpa) - The swearing in ceremony took place at the Quirinale Palace in the presence of President Giorgio Napolitano. As the ceremony was underway, reports emerged that two policemen had been injured during an exchange of fire in front of the nearby building that hosts the government.

Witnesses said they heard five or six shots being fired. A man was apprehended, according to the ANSA news agency. It was not immediately clear if the shooting incident had anything to do with the new government.

The new cabinet, composed of 21 members from the left, right and centre of the political spectrum, has an average age of 53, significantly lower than previous administrations.

It also includes seven women, among them the first minister to have been born in Africa.

Prime Minister Enrico Letta, 46, of the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), said he was satisfied with the team, which he said features "a record presence" of women.

Centre-Left candidate for the Presidency of Lazio Region, Emma Bonino, speaks during a rally organized by Italian center-left parties to mark "Defense of the Rules Day" in Del Popolo"s square in Rome.
Anna Maria Cancellieri, interior minister in the outgoing technocratic government of Mario Monti, has been appointed justice minister. Cecile Kyenge, an eye doctor who was born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is the new integration minister.

Other notable appointments include former European Union Commissioner Emma Bonino as foreign minister, and Bank of Italy director general Fabrizio Saccomanni as economy minister.

Saccomanni has vowed to cut spending and taxes and introduce measures to pull Italy out of recession.

The administration is backed by Letta‘s PD as well as Silvio Berlusconi‘s conservative People of Freedom (PDL) and Monti‘s centrists.

Berlusconi has ruled out a cabinet post, but his influence is assured by the presence of his party secretary, Angelino Alfano, as interior minister and deputy prime minister.

The protest Five Star Movement (M5S) of satirist Beppe Grillo, as well as the anti-immigration Northern League and small far-left and far-right parties, have said they will remain in opposition.

Silvio always on board.
The PD, PDL and M5S each obtained about one-quarter of the national vote in February‘s inconclusive elections, with the centre-left coalition beating Berlusconi‘s conservative grouping by a narrow margins.

Letta has vowed to put the economy and political reform at the heart of his government agenda.

"A political government was the only government possible in the interest of the country and Europe," President Giorgio Napolitano said Saturday.

Napolitano had previously appointed Monti to helm a non-aligned, technocratic government after Berlusconi‘s resignation in 2011, when Italy came under the spotlight of financial markets. dpa npr tlo bve
