Former PD leader Bersani leaves hospital in Parma
Brain surgery after hemorrhage for centre-left's ex-chief21 January, 17:18
The 62-year-old former chief of the Democratic Party (PD) was admitted to hospital on January 5 and required emergency brain surgery.
Doctors at the Maggiore hospital in Parma had said there appeared to be no brain damage to Bersani, who failed to lead the PD to victory in last year's general election.
After the vote, he then could not persuade the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) to back a government led by him after the election.
Instead, the PD had to settle for a left-right coalition headed by Bersani's then deputy, Enrico Letta.
Bersani quit as PD chief the same month after internal revolts prevented the party from having two of the candidates he had chosen elected as Italian president.
