Italian PM Renzi gestures as he leaves the EU Summit in BrusselsBy Francesco Guarascio BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Germany and the European Commission told Italy on Wednesday to follow the rules after Italy made preliminary plans to prop up its banks in the wake of volatility caused by Britain's vote to leave the European Union. Rome says it is concerned that Italian banks, which hold 360 billion euros (295.82 billion pound) of bad loans, a third of the euro zone's total, risk attack by hedge funds betting that market turmoil could tip them into full-blown crisis. Banking and government sources said Italy was preparing to protect its banking industry by requesting more flexibility from the EU on both public spending and state aid for its lenders.

European Union leaders had made it clear that Britain could not retain access to the EU single market without accepting the right of other EU nationals to move to the country, the head of the European Council Donald Tusk said on Wednesday. Britons voted in a referendum last week to leave the European Union, with Brexit campaigners saying the country needed to set limits on its intake of immigrants. There will be no single market a la carte," Tusk, who chairs meetings of EU leaders, said after a summit excluding the British prime minister on Wednesday.

The EU's leaders held their first meeting without Britain on Wednesday, as they face years of uncertainty while they negotiate the British withdrawal after last week's vote. Asked about the danger of a domino effect, Schaeuble said, "it is certainly not to be dismissed".
