Italian Education Minister Lorenzo Fioramonti said on Wednesday he had resigned after failing to obtain from the government billions of euros he insisted were needed to improve the country's schools and universities, APA reports citing Daily Sabah.

The resignation is a blow to the embattled government, whose ruling parties are at odds on issues ranging from eurozone reform to migrant rights.

He had tendered his "irrevocable resignation" to Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in a letter on Dec. 23.
