Rome, August 30 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano on Friday named four Senators for life, a power held
by the head of State under the Constitution to appoint permanent
members to the Upper House who have shown extraordinary
scientific, social or artistic merit.
Famed architect Renzo Piano, Nobel laureate particle
physicist Carlo Rubbia, world-renowned music conductor Claudio
Abbado and pharmacology professor and stem-cell research expert
Elena Cattaneo are to be given lifetime Senate seats.
Napolitano notified Senate Speaker Pietro Grasso of the
nominations, which required decrees signed also by Premier
Enrico Letta.
The president telephoned each of the candidates to inform
and congratulate them personally.
The appointments take the number of life Senators back up
to five.
Former Italian president Carlo Azeglio Ciampi and
ex-premier Mario Monti were left as the only two life Senators
by the deaths over the past year of former statesman Giulio
Andreotti, ex-premier Emilio Colombo and car designer Sergio
Pininfarina.
