Savino Pezzotta (born December 25, 1943)[1] is an Italian trade unionist and politician, and the president of the White Rose party.

Trade unionist[edit]

Pezzotta was a textile worker since 1959.[1] In 1963, he joined the Italian Confederation of Workers' Trade Unions (CISL)[1] and later became a trade union organizer.

In 1972, he joined the Political Movement of Workers, a group of progressive left-wing Catholics, and was a candidate for the Movement in the general election of 1972, obtaining 117 votes. After the small movement disappeared, he dedicated himself to trade union activity.

From 1993 to 1998, he was regional secretary of the CISL in Lombardy. In 1999, he joined the union's national leadership, and was elected its secretary-general one year later.[1] He resigned this post after the general elections of 2006.[1]


In 2008, Pezzotta became the president of the newly founded White Rose party.[1] He was elected to the Chamber of Deputies in the 2008 general elections.[2]
