Mr. Bersani… said that “only an insane person would want to govern” in the wake of such a tight election result, given public frustration at politicians and “in a country which is in a mess and faces a difficult year ahead.”

Three coalitions basically tied in the election. Any two of them could form a working government, but the conditions necessary make this impossible. Italy must call new elections soon.
