Enrico Letta, Prime Minister-designate of Italy, has been a Vice Chairman of Aspen Institute Italia since 2003. He actively participates in the Institute's programs, and has been particularly instrumental in giving renewed impetus to the Aspen Seminar for Leaders program, which - with some adaptations to a European approach - takes its inspiration from the Executive Seminars of The Aspen Institute in the US. He has represented Aspen Italia on a number of occasions in major international Seminars and Conferences at the Aspen Colorado campus. He also takes equal interest in programs devoted to Europe and the situation in Italy, which tackle a range contemporary strategic issues, including: national and international finance, problems besetting the real economy, the labor market, welfare, institutional and electoral reform, and the role of new media and the internet. Enrico Letta is also one of the leaders of the Institute's National Interest initiative, which seeks to showcase the many positive aspects and points of excellence that Italy has to offer, as well as foster debate on issues of national importance.
