The new design will merge the past and the present
Mayor of Parma is Federico Pizzarotti. He was born on October 7th 1973. He made national news by becoming the first Five Star Movement mayor in a provincial capital of Italy, after being elected on 21 May 2012 with 60.22% of votes in a runoff election. He left the Five Star Movement on 3 October 2016, after years of tensions with the national leadership of the party that culminated in his suspension on February 2016.
Following his departure from the Five Star Movement, he continued his mandate as an independent with the support of the city council group Effetto Parma (composed of former Five Star Movement councillors who stood by their mayor). On 25 June 2017, Pizzarotti was confirmed mayor of Parma for a second term by running as an independent supported by his civic movement Effetto Parma.
