If you don't know how to do it, launch the app Settings (the'icona dell'ingranaggio) that you find on the home screen or in the drawer (i.e. the screen with all the apps).


At this point, scroll through the menu that opens, until you reach the item Account (Or Users and accounts) and tap on the latter.

This means that you will no longer have Gmail emails, Google Drive documents and Google Calendar appointments on your phone (or tablet): to restore them, you will have to re-associate your Google account with the device (the data will remain saved on the Internet, on your personal space offered by Google).

If, on the other he, you want to create a new account, press the option Create an account and provide all the information you are asked for: name, surname, email address to be created, password and so on. You can find more information on this procedure in my guide on how to create Google accounts.
