Tommaso Tittoni (16 November 1855 – 7 February 1931) was an Italian diplomat, politician and Knight of the Annunziata.

Biography

Tommaso Tittoni was born in Romemarker, to which he returned in 1870, because his Father Vincenzo, a devotee of the Risorgimento, was forced in 1860 to flee the Papal Statesmarker.

He studied law and, after graduating, entered into politics under the auspices of the right-wing politicians.

He was elected to the Chamber of Deputies from 1886 to 1897, and was himself selected as senator by Victor Emmanuel III in 1902. From 1898 to 1903 he served as prefect in Perugiamarker until 1900, and later in Naplesmarker.

Foreign Minister of Italy from 1903 to 1905, was acting Prime Minister of Italy for only eleven days, from 16 March to 27 March 1905. Italian ambassador to Londonmarker (February to May 1906), he returned Foreign Minister in the third cabinet Giolitti and then was Italian ambassador to Parismarker (April 1910 - November 1916). For the third time Foreign Minister in the Nitti government from 23 June 1919, he was at the same time head of the Italian delegation to the Paris Peace Conference until his resignation from the government on 25 November 1919. From 1 December 1919 to 21 January 1929 he was president of the Italian Senate of the Kingdom.

After the March on Rome, Tittoni supported Mussolini's Government and later became the first president of Accademia d'Italia (28 October 1929–16 September 1930), the most important cultural institution of the fascist dictatorship. On 8 April 1923 he had received the supreme honour of the knighthood of the Annunziata by King Victor Emmanuel.
