In Detail

Romano Prodi graduated in economics at Milan's Catholic University and did postgraduate studies at the London School of Economics. He also spent a year as visiting professor at Harvard in 1974. He has received almost 20 honorary degrees from institutions in Italy, and from the rest of Europe, North America, Asia, and Africa. From 1982-1989 and 1993-1994 Prodi was CEO of the powerful state-owned industrial holding company IRI. He surprised everyone by successfully getting Italy accepted as a member of the single European currency against all odds.


His long experience as a politician and economist has enabled him to become one of the most recognised experts in Europe to treat some of the more topical issues such as the economic crisis or the use of renewable energy.
