Ferrari’s president of 20 years, Luca di Montezemolo, is being urged to run for the Italian presidency in 2013. A 64-year-old lawyer born in Bologna, Montezemolo caught the attention of many Italian citizens after he wrote an open letter to the 40,000-member Italia Futura party for them to be ready for an election.

He had written about the failure of the Second Republic, prompting him to talk about the need for new people and ideas since the upcoming elections would be of “historic importance."

He pointed out that the first proposal is to sell the assets of the States and to reduce public debt. He said that he is optimistic that the next elections would be different as Italians realize that its current politicians are responsible for the whole mess.

He said that next year, Italia Futura will do its best to achieve this by encouraging new ideas and the new personalities that Italy deserves. For there to be a “strong, united network” in Italy by June, the company will work even harder at a grassroots level. It’s not yet known how Montezemolo's role at Ferrari will be affected by a presidential campaign. [source: Autonews]
