Born into the Polish noble family, he is the grandson of Stanisław Gawroński, Rawicz coat of arms (1860-1942) and his wife, Princess Helena Lubomirska (1870-1950).[1] Gawronski, who speaks Polish fluently, was born in Vienna, Austria, the son of a Polish ambassador, Jan Gawroński, and the Italian writer Luciana Frassati. He was correspondent for RAI (Italian State television) from New York, Paris, Moscow and Warsaw, and later hosted some political shows for Silvio Berlusconi's Mediaset network. He collaborated with the newspapers Il Giorno and La Stampa. From 1981 to 1994 he was a member of the European Parliament for the Italian Republican Party. He later switched to Berlusconi's Forza Italia, for which he was elected to the Italian Senate in 1996–99.[citation needed]
