Vocal critic of former leader Silvio Berlusconi, Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo has announced his intention to run for the position of Prime Minister of Italy.
Montezemolo has quite the background to make a legitimate run for office too, being a member of Italy’s hereditary aristocracy and a lawyer by profession. He currently presides over Ferrari and Fiat and has even coordinated the World Cup while it was in Italy. Now obviously those are trivial tasks compared to running a country, but Montezemolo looks poised to take on the task now.
Back in 2009, he formed Italia Futura, a center-left think tank which could rapidly become a political party placing Montezemolo as a candidate for prime minister. Elections are scheduled for 2013 and it’ll be interesting how big of a role Montezemolo will play.
