Italian president began talks with political parties on Wednesday about forming a new government. 
 
The talks are in hopes of getting the country out of the government crisis resulted from Prime Minister Conte's resignation.
 
President Mattarella will play a key role during negotiations to form a new Italian government. Talks with party leaders will likely continue through Thursday.
 
He has to verify if lawmakers can shape an alternative majority.
 
He could also suggest forming a technocrat government.
 
If the consultations fail, Mattarella will be forced to dissolve parliament and consider snap elections. 
 
Italy's major parties have started defining their positions during the crisis.
 
A possible deal between the anti-establishment Five Star Movement and Italy's center-left Democratic Party has been scrutinized by political analysts and media.
