A new Bianconeri assembly has been voted in at the Italian Parliament. Juventus Club Giovanni Agnelli, a parliamentary group of senators and deputies with a passion for all things Juve, has appointed its new Board, with Democratic Party MP Francesco Boccia as the new president. The lower-house deputy takes over from People of Freedom MP Maurizio Paniz, who was elected as honorary president by acclamation.
Juventus supporters represent a majority in Parliament, reflecting the general trend across Italy. There are currently 96 serving parliamentarians (65 deputies and 31 senators) as well as 159 politicians from previous legislatures. Members are divided evenly between right- and left-wing parties, thus proving – if such proof were needed – that the love for our famed black-and-white shirt goes beyond any political leanings.
The new Board is composed as follows: Deputy Francesco Boccia, Deputy Salvatore Buglio, Deputy Massimo Corsaro, Deputy Raffaele Fitto, Senator Giuseppe Lumia, Deputy Tommaso Pellegrino, Senator Maria Rizzotti, Senator Francesco Russo, Senator Vincenzo Santangelo, Deputy Daniela Sbrollini and Senator Raffaele Volpi.
Besides electing Francesco Boccia as president, the new Board has named Salvatore Buglio and Raffaele Volpi as vice-presidents and Massimo Corsaro as operations manager, while Rodolfo Zaccaretti has been reappointed as club secretary.
The new president's election comes just a few days after he appeared at a public event connected to Juventus. On Monday, Francesco Boccia kindly participated in the launch of the J-Academy project in Rome, together with Gianluca Pessotto and Carolina Morace.
Juventus FC would like to extend its congratulations to president Francesco Boccia and all the members of the Board on their respective appointments.
