Italy's controversial ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi has returned to the centre of the political stage, striking a reform deal with a centre-left rival.

Berlusconi was thrown out of parliament in 2013 after a tax fraud conviction.

Under their agreement, he will back electoral and constitutional proposals aimed at making Italy more governable.
