Giuseppe Sfondrini

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Giuseppe Sfondrini (* 28. March 1923 in Mezzana Bigli , province of Pavia , † 29 / 30th January 2012 in Bolzano ) was an Italian politician .


Sfondrini was born in Lombardy in 1923 , but moved to Bolzano with his parents as a child. Towards the end of the Second World War , he joined the Resistenza . For years, with the help of his wife Armida, he ran the Cinema Corso on Freedom Street in Bolzano .

He received his first political mandate in 1952 when he was elected to the Bolzano municipal council for the Partito Socialista Democratico Italiano (PSDI). He was a member of this until 1967. During this time he was from 1953 to 1957 assessor for health care and hygiene and briefly for the city police in the community committee, from 1961 to 1962 for the city police and from 1965 to 1967 for the city and market police.

In 1967 Sfondrini resigned from his local political offices and replaced his party friend from the PSDI Decio Molignoni , who was a candidate in the parliamentary elections, in the South Tyrolean state parliament , the regional council of Trentino-South Tyrol and the South Tyrolean state government ( Magnago II cabinet ). From 1968 to 1993 he was a member of the state parliament as a representative of the Partito Socialista Italiano (PSI); During this time he was from 1970 to 1974 in the Magnago III cabinet of the Italian state school council, from 1974 to 1976 in the Magnago IV cabinet for industry, from 1981 to 1983 President of the state parliament, and from 1984 to 1994 in the Magnago VI and Durnwalder I cabinets for industry and vocational training. From 1992 to 1994 he worked as a member of the six and twelve commission on implementing provisions for the further development of the autonomy of South Tyrol .

In 1995 Sfondrini returned to Bolzano local politics as a council member of the center-left electoral alliance Patto dei Democratici . From 1998 to 2000 he was a member of the community committee responsible for environmental protection. In the following two municipal council elections, he ran successfully for the Socialisti Democratici Italiani . From 2000 to 2003 he was chairman of the local council, and in 2010 he ended his political career.

Sfondrini, who felt particularly close to Sandro Pertini within PSI , was over the years the only decidedly socialist exponent of the South Tyrolean political landscape - with increasingly dwindling numbers of voters. On the night of January 29th to 30th, 2012 he died in the Bolzano hospital .
