Lorenzo Cesa (born 16 August 1951) is an Italian politician and the current Secretary of the Union of the Centre.


Cesa graduated in Political Science from the LUISS University in Rome. He was manager of important companies and banks, including ANAS.

He was elected Municipal councillor of Rome with the Christian Democracy. Subsequently he joined the Christian Democratic Centre and the Union of Christian and Centre Democrats.

In the 2004 European Parliament election Cesa was elected MEP with 103,000 preference votes.

On 27 October 2005 he was elected Secretary of the UDC, succeeding Marco Follini.

In the 2006 general election he was elected to the Chamber of Deputies, so he resigned as MEP. He was also re-elected MP in the 2008 and 2013 elections.

In the 2014 European Parliament election he was again elected MEP, among the ranks of the New Centre-Right – UDC. In the general election of 2018 he was a candidate for the Chamber of Deputies, in the uninominal college of Nola (with the support of the centre-right coalition) and in the relative proportional list (Us with Italy – UDC), but he was not elected, so kept the office as an MEP.

In the 2019 European election Cesa was candidate on the Forza Italia list, but he was not re-elected.[1]
