By Gavin Jones ROME (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi on Wednesday presented a sweeping package of tax cuts, saying they could help economic recovery without breaking EU budget deficit limits. Renzi, in his first full news conference since taking office last month, said income tax would be reduced by a total 10 billion euros ($14 billion) annually for 10 million low and middle income workers from May 1. The 39-year-old former mayor of Florence said his agenda to stimulate the economy was the most ambitious Italy had ever seen as he reeled off measures he insisted were fully funded. Italy is struggling to emerge from its longest post-war recession and Renzi has made clear that job creation and growth, rather than austerity, will be the focus of his government.
