MILAN (Reuters) - Telecom Italia appointed Vivendi's chief executive Arnaud de Puyfontaine as its chairman on Thursday, a source close to the matter said, as the French media group further tightens its grip on the former national monopoly.

De Puyfontaine will replace Giuseppe Recchi, who takes on the role of deputy chairman, the source said.
