'I'll visit a school every Wednesday' says Renzi (ANSA) - Rome, February 24 - Premier Matteo Renzi said Monday he would visit a school every Wednesday starting in Treviso in the far north this week and moving to the south next week because education is "the engine of growth". "It's essential the government is not only in Rome," Renzi, who is married to a teacher, told the Senate in a confidence-seeking speech. Agnese Landini, a Florentine Italian literature teacher who has three children with Italy's youngest-ever premier, was in the upper house to watch her husband lay out his policies in the first of two confidence votes, expected to take place Monday night.

The second, in the House, is expected Tuesday night.
