Vito Bonsignore (born 3 July 1943 in Bronte, Catania, Sicily) is an Italian politician and Member of the European Parliament for North-West with the Cristiani Democratici Uniti, part of the European People's Party and sits on the European Parliament's Committee on Budgetary Control and its Committee on Budgets.

He is also a vice-chair of the Delegation for relations with the United States and a substitute for the Delegation to the ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly.


He has been convicted and sentenced to 2 years for attempted corruption in the construction of a hospital in Asti.

During Mani pulite (in Turin), he has been accused by Alberto Zamorani to have accepted more than 100 million of lire as under-secretary of the Budget (1992), hidden in a chocolate box.[1] This assertion turned out to be groundless as it did not result in any actual charge or imputation.[2]
