Romano Prodi, twice-elected Prime Minister of Italy, was also President of the European Commission (1999–2004), one of the governing bodies of the European Union (EU). Prodi graduated from Catholic University in Milan in 1961 and did postdoctoral work at the London School of Economics. Mr Prodi's first term as prime minister from 1996 to 1999, leading the "Olive Tree" coalition, made him head of Italy's first genuine centre-left government since the fall of fascism. One of his greatest achievements was preparing Italy to join the euro by cutting spending and imposing a one-off "tax for Europe."

Mr. Prodi then went to Brussels as the European Commission president, and is credited with overseeing the introduction of the euro and the enlargement of the European Union.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Contact p.bracke@lse.ac.uk for details.
