    Background: After a three hour meeting of the Italian Cabinet at Villa Madama, Rome, July 19, Premier Tambroni went to the Quirinal Palace and handed his resignation to President Gronchi. Tambroni was asked to carry on until a new Government is formed.

    Tambroni's Government was formed only last March, and the pending change in Government follows recent wide-spread riots in Italy, which caused 11 deaths and injured 1,000 people.

    The Christian Democratic Party, from which the Tambroni Government was drawn, subsequently gave official approval to the Government's handling of the riots. But in the Chamber of Deputies debate on the riots there was strong criticism for the Socialist and Social Democratic Parties of the Tambroni Government's reliance on the neo-fascist vote, which some opposition speakers held to have been the cause of the disturbances.

    It is believed that Signor Fanfani, leader of the Christian Democratic Party Left-wing group has been accepted as the next Premier by the Party's leaders. He is expected to head a "middle of the road" Government, with the Christian Democratic Party receiving support from the Social Democrats, the Republicans and the conservative Liberal Party.
