Roberto Speranza

We need to work to build an alternative point of view to Renzi.feedback

Silvio Berlusconi

Taking the country to the ballot boxes in these conditions would be irresponsible.feedback

Roberto Di Legami

There were tens of thousands of e-mail accounts hacked, and among them were accounts belonging to bankers, businessmen and even several cardinals in the Vatican.feedback

Erik Jones

Since the referendum constitutes a risk for the PD (Democratic Party, led by Matteo Renzi), I suspect that Renzi will ensure that elections are held this Spring before such a referendum can take place. That will push the referendum off the agenda until – I believe – 2018.feedback

Matteo Renzi

The country was occupied by foreign countries for long periods, so the people had to adapt to each new situation. That plays some part, too.feedback

Matteo Renzi

You can give a lot of seats to a party but the problem is a day after they don't follow the [party] line and they are prone to rebellion. Also, the fact the state and republic is relatively young there's no sense of stability and belonging to the state, for a lot of different reasons.feedback

Matteo Renzi

The next elections, presumably in June, will be held with a proportional voting system.feedback

Silvio Berlusconi

It's up to the PD to express and sustain a government for the remaining part of the legislature, which has to be as short as possible.feedback

Sergio Mattarella

In the coming hours I will evaluate what has emerged from these discussions and will take the necessary initiatives for the solution of the government crisis.feedback

Markus Huber

Recent events in Italy leading to Prime Minister Renzi to resign and resulting in more uncertainty for Italy and the euro zone ... make an extension of QE by the ECB more likely. Until recently, the most likely scenario appeared to be that the ECB would slowly reduce the amount of QE starting in April or even earlier. However this might be pushed out much further now as the ECB won't be risking the euro zone sliding into a new crisis.feedback

Matteo Renzi

Budget law approved. At 7 p.m. formal resignation. A thank-you to everybody. Long live Italy.feedback

Patrick O'Donnell - Aberdeen Asset Management

If Monte dei Paschi's plan fails, then that spells bad news for the other Italian banks that need recapitalizing. If Italy can't sort out its banks, then they will be in a real mess. Once again Europe finds itself in a position where politics, the ECB, and the banks are dangerously entwined.feedback

Stephen Innes

Global risk sentiment roared back after falling prey to the initial (Italian Prime Minster) Renzi fallout and whatever negatives Italy creates for the eurozone, yesterday (Monday) was not the time for a euro implosion.feedback

Angelino Alfano

I am increasingly convinced that creating a government after this government is very difficult, that this legislature is coming to its conclusion.feedback

Sergio Mattarella

There are commitments and deadlines which the institutions need to respect, to guarantee answers consistent with the problems of the moment.feedback

Angelino Alfano

If I had to bet a euro I would say that we will go to vote not in the spring but in the winter, in February 2017.feedback

Nicola Mai - Pimco

The referendum outcome makes the recapitalisation of Monte dei Paschi harder to achieve, with potential negative knock-on effects on the rest of the system and in particular on UniCredit's equity raising plans.feedback

Connor Campbell - Spreadex

It doesn't take a lot for the Dow to be at an all-time peak anymore. Another half a percent climb has seen the index break 19250 for the first time, continuing its astonishing post-election rise.feedback

Matteo Renzi

My government’s experience ends here. I believe that in order to change this political system, in which leaders remain the same and switch different positions, but don’t change the country, we cannot pretend for an umpteenth time that everything remains as before. They don’t change their habits and they will never leave their seats. I wanted to cut extra seats, but I didn’t succeed. Therefore, it is my seat which is becoming vacant.feedback

Matteo Renzi

I wasn't able to win, I beg you to believe I did everything I thought was possible at this stage.feedback

James Newell

The electoral law might not survive in its current form. If Renzi loses, then the electoral law will have to be revised and the prospect of an M5S majority government will retreat accordingly. For the law's operability depends on the constitutional reforms being passed and it is opposed by powerful groups from across the political spectrum.feedback

Matteo Renzi

There is no reason to talk of a euro crisis and there is certainly no reason to conjure one up.feedback

Michael J. Geary

Renzi thought he could tackle (the rise of anti-establishment sentiment) by making it about him; we see now that was a radical big mistake for him and now he's paying the ultimate price by having to resign much like David Cameron last June when they try to leverage that personal popular support for him on a wider canvas and ultimately it just simply failed, Squawk Box.feedback

Renato Brunetta - Forza

The ball's in President Sergio Mattarella's court. As far as we go, never, never would a second mandate to Renzi [be acceptable].feedback

Megane Greene - Roubini Global Economics

Whatever solution is found for Monte dei Paschi, I believe there is a significant risk of contagion to other Italian banks in particular.feedback

Matteo Renzi

I lost and the post that gets eliminated is mine. The government's experience is over.feedback

Seamus Mac Gorain - JPMorgan Asset Management

Most market participants don't expect an early election. Even though Renzi has said he will resign, a new government is likely to be formed and that will lead to a bit more stability. People are conscious that the ECB is buying Italian bonds and, now that the Italian referendum is over, the focus turns to Thursday's ECB meeting.feedback

Wolfgang Schäuble

Italy has to continue in a consistent manner on the path that Prime Minister Renzi has taken economically and politically over the past three years. Those responsible in Italy know that.feedback

Wolfgang Schäuble

I think we should see the situation in Italy with a certain calmness. That is how democratic and constitutional processes work in the member states. The Italians have decided, that is to be respected. They will make the best of it. I think there is no need to talk about a euro crisis.feedback

Matteo Renzi

The 'No's' have won in an extraordinary clear-cut way. I lost and the post that gets eliminated is mine.feedback

Beppe Grillo

We did a great job, thus the important thing is, if we must lose, we don't blame anybody. If the Italians choose something else, we'll respect it.feedback

Eugenio Scalfari - La Repubblica

For example, if only 30 per cent of eligible voters turn out, the result will hardly be influential.feedback

Massimo D'Alema

We didn't exit from Europe, but we didn't 'exit,' from the Constitution either.feedback

Luigi Di Maio

Arrogance lost, from which we'll learn many things in forming our team for government and our platform. Starting tomorrow we'll be working on a government of the 5-Stars, we'll involve the energies and the free persons who want to participate.feedback

Matteo Renzi

If 'Yes' wins, Italy will be the strongest country in Europe.feedback

Graziano Delrio

I believe that ... (if defeated) Renzi will go to the head of state and hand in his resignation.feedback

Matteo Renzi

It is not for us, it is not for a political party, it is for them.feedback

Matteo Renzi

If 'Yes' wins, Italy will become the leader of Europe.feedback

Fergus McCormick

If a yes vote prevails, then we would assume (Prime Minister Matteo) Renzi stays in and he has a mandate to continue with his economic reform program. That would most likely be the best outcome from a credit standpoint. If the referendum is defeated by a very wide margin, and then snap elections are called, this raises the political uncertainty...We are concerned about investor sentiment in this environment.feedback

Matteo Richetti

We made a mistake in personalising this reform. But I think we can still win this. Italians realise this is not about Renzi, but about how the country should be governed for years to come.feedback

Larissa Brunner - Oxford Analytica

(In the context of Europe), if Renzi wins then he may well become more confrontational and stretch EU deficit laws even further while pursuing a more expansionary monetary policy which could be interesting but if he loses … Well, it's anyone's guess.feedback

Holger Schmieding - Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co.

Also, many of the rebellious young people who oppose Renzi may not bother to vote. Whereas the outcome is thus no foregone conclusion, I put the probability of a 'no' vote at 60 percent.feedback

Holger Schmieding - Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co.

Some whispers suggest that more than half of the up to 20 percent of undecided voters may back Renzi in the end.feedback

Carsten Nickel

Governing Italy has always been a difficult affair. Pushing reforms has been difficult.feedback

Matteo Renzi

To the financial markets we say that we have always received the message that structural reforms are the prime asset of Italy's future. I think that's something everybody has always said, everywhere. And we think that structural reforms is what the country needs.feedback

Megane Greene - Roubini Global Economics

If you have a crisis in the Italian banking sector kicking off again, not only that could spread across Europe but also the solution that Renzi may come up with to just break the rules and bailout the banks, in which case he would be massively undermining (the) banking union, which is actually the only area where they made progress in Europe since the beginning of the crisis.feedback

Ayako Sera - Sumitomo Mitsui Trust

Renzi is not obligated to step down, but has said he intends to if he loses, which has weighed on the euro.feedback

Rick Rieder - BlackRock

We think that is somewhat overstated. It's making a series of assumptions. One is that Renzi resigns. Two is that you're giving up on any plans to help stabilize the banking system. And both of those are big assumptions.feedback

Elga Bartsch - Morgan Stanley & Co. International

With the Italian referendum, the French presidential election and the German general election, we are essentially attempting a political triple jump in Europe. Matteo Renzi will likely lose the referendum on the constitution, but we don't expect that to pave the way for an early election into the first half of next year.feedback

Carlo Calenda

My personal opinion is that Renzi should stay. What needs to be considered ... is what is good for the country.feedback

Matteo Richetti

All those who are demanding a 'No' vote should support a government that prepares the way for elections. But that won't happen. They are going to create an almighty mess and expect us to clear it up.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

Italy is an essential part of Europe, should we lose it as Europe's architect, inspirer and artisan, it would not be the same.feedback

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

I don't know whether I would be useful to Renzi saying I would like to see 'Yes' win, I just say I would not like to see 'No' prevailing (in the referendum). Italy is a great nation and Renzi has contributed to this, we have to admit this.feedback

Matteo Renzi

At the moment, the management of this situation has been flawless, especially with citizens taking part.feedback

Sergio Marchionne - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles

But its value lies in its recognition of the willingness of the country to change. It is time to stand behind the prime minister on this.feedback

Andrea Montanino

If Renzi suffers a big loss, he can't continue easily. A 60-40 vote means Renzi will likely resign, and then it will depend on the parliament to figure out what to do next.feedback

Matteo Renzi

The market is reacting to the better political environment and, bar the Italian referendum which will probably be another source of concern, there is a sigh of relief that the year's turbulent and somewhat surprising politics are behind us.feedback

Stephen Szabo

The prospect of a Fillon presidency clearly is welcome in Berlin. If Le Pen loses and Renzi survives, Merkel will have a chance to shape European responses to Brexit, the refugee situation, the problems with the euro and Russia.feedback

Matteo Renzi

This government was born to make constitutional reforms, as you remember. We've made them and it's up to the citizens to decide if they are good or not. But our mission was to give Italy a reboot, it is stronger than before but still not as much as we would like, and the approval of the constitutional reforms which, as you know, is now in the hands of the people sovereign.feedback

Renato Mannheimer

Nearly all the undecided voters would have to vote 'Yes' for Renzi to recover, and that is certainly not the trend that we are seeing.feedback

Alessandra Ghisleri

Trump's victory was important because Renzi strongly backed Hillary Clinton and so people link him with the loser and the mainstream establishment that Clinton was seen as representing.feedback

Renato Mannheimer

It's all about disenchantment with Renzi because the economic crisis isn't finished and the lives of most Italians aren't improving. I don't think it has much to do with the constitutional reform itself.feedback

Federico Benini

It seems those who back the reform were the first to decide and now we are seeing the undecideds, who are mostly less interested in politics, moving towards 'No' because they want to get rid of Renzi. I think Renzi is going to lose.feedback

Piet Lammens - KBC Group

The markets are afraid of Italy, and that has been behind the spread widening. Italian banks are one of the reasons and, of course, the fate of Renzi.feedback

Neil Wilson - ETX Capital

We have Renzi now saying he won't head up a technocratic government in the event he loses the vote so it's turned into a straight referendum on the prime minister and his government. It's going to be that much harder to fix Italian banks if he loses and it looks like it's going that way.feedback

Matteo Renzi

I'm not willing to take part in old-style political games. Either we change or I have no role to play.feedback

Matteo Renzi

I can't be someone who negotiates a deal with the other parties to create a little government or one with a limited goal (to change the electoral system).feedback

Matteo Renzi

We give 20 billion to Europe and the EU gives us back 12, but if Hungary or Slovakia preach to us about migrants and don't give us a hand and when want our money, we will say 'there is no way, absolutel.feedback

Federico Benini

It may be that a significant number of those in the south who say they are going to vote 'No' will end up staying at home.feedback

Matteo Renzi

December 4 is their last chance to get back into the game. That is what this is all about.feedback

Matteo Renzi

We are at a fork in the road. The referendum pitches the past against the future, cynicism against hope, hope and ideals against nostalgia and yesterday.feedback
