Italian center-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani said on Thursday that his attempt to form a government after last month's inconclusive elections had failed, and President Giorgio Napolitano will now decide what to do.

"I told the president that (my attempt) had not found a solution and at this point the president decided to immediately verify the situation himself," Bersani told reporters after an hour long meeting with Napolitano.
