Rome, November 13 - The Italian MP Giovanna
Melandri recently tapped as president of the MAXXI Foundation,
the non-profit organization that owns and runs the Rome MAXXI
Museum resigned from parliament on Tuesday.
"I leave Parliament with great emotion," Melandri said
during her last House meeting.
"I only hope that the controversy around my choice to
resign and drive this extraordinary museum will at least serve
as publicity. You are all invited to visit".
Melandri's appointment by Culture Minister Lorenzo Ornaghi
reportedly stirred accusations of political horse-trading in
October, and prompted a meeting between Premier Mario Monti with
Ornaghi to discuss it.
Melandri is a politician from the center left who served as
culture minister under ex-premier Romano Prodi and has written a
book on the importance of culture and landscape for national
tourism policy.
