Vatican daily says premier switch tastes 'stale' (see related stories) (ANSA) - Rome, February 14 - Vatican daily L'Osservatore Romano on Friday described as "stale" the political maneuvering that saw Enrico Letta resign as premier with the leader of his Democratic Party, Matteo Renzi, set to take over.

"What remains in the eyes of the Italian people and the observers from abroad is the umpteenth government crisis with reasons and rituals that taste stale," read an editorial.

"So with Renzi the moment has come in which the whole of Italy needs to turn a new leaf, after 20 years in which little of use has been achieved".
