Who will be the Italian of the year 2019?

For the second year in a row, Italics Magazine will name an “Italian of the Year” on the basis of different criteria such as personal merits, social and political influence, and international impact. In 2018, the person in question was Sergio Marchionne who, before passing away last summer, made the headlines across the world for saving the giant car company Fiat Chrysler.
