Ciampi from 1993 to 1994, and minister of communications under
Premier Romano Prodi from 1996 to 1998.
"I remember Antonio Maccanico with affection, a servant of
the State in the literal sense of the word. A man who was
authoritative and yet simple, never arrogant nor inclined to
role-based rhetoric," said Gianfranco Rotondi, an ex-minister
and current member of parliament with Silvio Berlusconi's People
of Freedom Party (PdL).
