UPDATE 1-Italy's transport minister orders dissolution of Ferrovie's board

(adds quotes, details)

ROME, July 25 (Reuters) - Italy’s transport minister said on Wednesday he had begun the procedure to dissolve the board of state-owned railways group Ferrovie dello Stato (FS).

The move comes after Italy’s new anti-establishment government had repeatedly flagged the intention of replacing Ferrovie’s chief Renato Mazzoncini, who had been appointed by the former centre-left government led by Matteo Renzi.

“I have just signed the dissolution of the entire board of FS,” Danilo Toninelli said in a post on Facebook.

The dissolution needs the approval of Italy’s Finance Ministry, which fully owns the railways group - a move seen as a formality.
