Biography

Annagrazia Calabria (born in New York City on May 6, 1982) is an Italian politician, member of the Italian Parliament for the People of Freedom party of Silvio Berlusconi.
She is also an American citizen, daughter of the former Finance Director of Leonardo-Finmeccanica, Luigi Calabria, and niece of the former International Head of M&A of Merrill Lynch, Carlo Calabria. Her mother, Cynthia Alfonsi, is regional coordinator of the women’s organisation of Forza Italia since the 1990s, and Annagrazia was raised in the party’s miniclub in Rome.
After studying law at LUISS University, she was intern at Allen & Overy law firm in Rome.
She has been Secretary of Scientific Committee of Italy-USA Foundation from 2008 to 2014.
She is member of the People of Freedom party. Thanks to the election of Gianni Alemanno as mayor of Rome in 2008, she took his place in the Parliament at the age of 26, becoming the youngest Italian MP.
Since 2010 she is, along with Giorgia Meloni, coordinator of the youth branch of the People of Freedom. She has been criticised for her complete lack of political experience in party politics and local administration, and her critics have pointed out that she may have been chosen for her good-look and faithfulness to Berlusconi.
