Francesco Palermo
Professor of Law, Independent Senator

“The coolest part of being a senator is that at least you’re part of the legislative body and you can not only preach what should be done but also try to do it.” Francesco Palermo is professor of law in Verona, director of the Institute for Studies on Federalism and Regionalism in Bozen and senator in Rome. Therefore, his free time is limited: “What i really like is, when I find time to focus, to concentrate, to read, to reflect a little bit.”
