A right-wing coalition, led by Giorgia Meloni, is set to take a majority of seats in parliament.
Italy appears to be on course to elect its first female prime minister and far-right leader since World War II.
The coalition will be led by Giorgia Meloni, who is credited with giving her party the meteoric rise it needed to win a national election.
Meloni said voters gave her a clear mandate to govern, and she will lead for all Italians.
So what will that mean for Italy and Europe?
