He was born in Italy on March 25, 1968. Exactly eleven years after the ratification of the Treaty of Rome; you can’t make it up!
His life as a European began in Sogliano al Rubicone. Studying law in Bologna, international relations at the Institut d’études politiques de Paris and the Université libre de Bruxelles, then macroeconomics at the London School of Economics, he built his European identity through the countries he studied in. He grew up in an expanding and developing Europe. He then became interested in public affairs and more particularly in European affairs. An appetite that led him in 1999 to Romano Prodi’s cabinet, the then President of the European Commission.
He was elected on the French Renaissance list in May 2019, then became adviser to the French Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, in the summer, and took up his duties in the European Parliament following Brexit in February 2020.
Since then he has been working hard in the Internal Market, Constitutional Affairs and Regional Development Committees. He is determined to help create a truly transnational Europe. Mobilising citizens and advancing European integration is the meaning of his commitment!
