Gian Piero Ventura has been sacked as Italy manager following their failure to reach the 2018 World Cup.
For the first time since 1958, the Azzurri have failed to qualify for the showpiece tournament.
A 0-0 draw against Sweden on Monday at the San Siro saw the Scandinavian nation claim a 1-0 aggregate victory in their qualifying playoff, with Italy's tactics widely criticised.
Ventura could only lead Italy to a second-place finish in UEFA qualifying Group G, finishing five points behind group winners Spain and setting up a play-off with the Swedes to reach Russia.
"During a meeting called by FIGC president Carlo Tevecchio... the failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia was discussed," a statement by the Italian football federation read.
"As the first order of business Tevecchio revealed the release of the entire technical team and, from today onwards, Gian Piero Ventura is no longer coach of the national team."
