Brando Benifei

Benifei is the youngest MEP of the socialist and democratic group; arrives at this goal after being elected in the North-West district with over 39 thousand preferences in the European elections of 2014. Behind him has an important experience in militancy and in party life, intertwining the commitment at international level with that at the level local, carried on parallel to a course of study and work. He approaches politics during adolescence, taking part in the mobilizations for the defense of public education and quality, against the reforms of Minister Moratti of the Berlusconi II government. From this moment on, while he is still at school, activism becomes daily bread for him: in 2002, he is appointed representative of the institute at the "Lorenzo Costa" Liceo Classico and Head of the Juvenile Left School of La Spezia.
