Susy De Martini
Professor Isabella 'Susy' De Martini (born 17 June 1952 in Genoa) is an Italian politician and academic. She is a member of The Right and is currently a Member of the European Parliament, representing North-West Italy.
De Martini was a regional coordinator of the Liberal Democrats as part of the The People of Freedom (PDL) electoral list in the 2008 general election. She stood on the PDL's electoral list at the 2009 European election. She won 19,205 votes: not enough to win her a seat, but finishing first amongst those that weren't elected. When two MEPs were appointed Senators after the 2013 general election, De Martini succeeded Mario Mauro, becoming an MEP on 12 April 2013. Upon election, she immediately left the PDL delegation and its European People's Party group and joined the European Conservatives and Reformists.
She is also a professor at the University of Genoa.
