Federico Marconcini (1884-1974), Italian politician, economist, and academic; professor at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan. Marconcini carried out all his political activity first in the Italian Popular Party and then in the Christian Democrats. He adhered to the ideas of Don Luigi Sturzo from the beginning and placed a strong emphasis on economic policy and local autonomy. In 1914 he was elected city councilor in Turin in the ranks of the party monarchist. After the First World War he was among the founders of the Italian Popular Party in Piedmont in 1919, with which he held the positions of provincial councilor, Deputy in the 25th legislature of the Kingdom of Italy (1919-21), then of XXVI (1921-24) and XXVII. Close to the Royal Family, he participated in the Aventinian Secession, was a firm opponent of Fascism and for this he was persecuted by the Regime, declared his position as deputy in 1926 and forced to retire from active political life like Alcide de Gasperi. He continued his career as a brilliant lecturer.
