Emilio Colombo (born 11 April 1920) is an Italianmarker diplomat and politician. In addition to having held top positions in Italian governments, he was also active in European politics.

Biography

Born in Potenzamarker, Basilicata, Colombo entered politics as a member of the Christian Democratic Party. Having held several cabinet posts, he was Prime Minister of Italy from 1970 until his resignation in 1972. Later he became President of the European Parliamentmarker (occupying that office from 1977 until 1979) and Foreign Minister of Italy (from 1980 until 1983, and again from 1992 until 1993). A decade after he last held that position, President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi bestowed Italy's highest political honour on him, by nominating him Senator for life.

Shortly after this, in November 2003, Colombo made headlines once again. To widespread astonishment, he admitted to have used cocaine (for "therapeutic purposes") over a 12- to 18-month period, and to be a homosexual.
