Biography[edit]

A graduate in political science in 1985, he was a lecturer in vocational guidance (1985-1994).

In 1986-1991, he was a member of the Turin Province party executive of the Italian Communist Party (PCI), and joined the Communist Refoundation Party (PRC) in 1991, serving as its representative to the Council of the Turin Province until 1995. Between 1994 and 2004, he served in the Chamber of Deputies of Italy. In 1995-1998, he was coordinator of the National Secretariat of the PRC, then left to become a founding member and Italian Parliament group-leader of the Party of Italian Communists (until 2004).

In July 2009, after his expulsion from the Party of Italian Communists (having supported the IdV's candidate Gianni Vattimo in the 2009 European election), he founded a new party called Communists – Popular Left (then renamed Communist Party).[1][2]

He is an atheist.[3]
