    Background: Italy's President Gronchi, Feb. 27, continued his discussions with political party leaders in an attempt to form a new government. Among those he had talks with were Signor Segni, Prime Minister in the Christian Democrat Government which resigned Feb 24: Signor Scelbe, another Christian Democrat, and Signor Togliatti, leader of the Communist Party.

    The Christian Democrats, who have been Italy's leading party for the past 14 years, resigned after the Liberals withdrew their support from the Government Feb.21. They have a majority of seats in both houses, but not an absolute majority, and need support from outside the party to form a government. Their chief rivals are the Communists.
