Benedetto is a member of the Italian Senate, elected in 2013 with the party founded by former Prime Minister Mario Monti, Scelta Civica. He has a longstanding career as MP both in the Italian Chamber of Deputies, from 2006 to 2013, elected with the Party of Freedom, and as a member of the European Parliament from 1999 to 2004, elected with the Emma Bonino List. During his tenure in Strasbourg, Benedetto was a member of the Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs and of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, and also a member of the Delegation for relations with countries of South Asia and the SAARC.

Benedetto was also a government-appointed Counsellor at the National Council on Economy and Labour of Italy, CNEL, in 2005-2006.

As a commentator on political and economic affairs, Benedetto has been a contributor to Italy’s major economic national newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore and to the Corriere della Sera. He conducts radio programs on Radio Radicale and is a regular commentator for Strade magazine.

A member of the Transnational Radical Party since 1992, he is a staunch advocate of human rights and fundamental freedoms, of the abolition of the capital punishment, of free market and the European Union. He recently promoted a bill in the Italian Parliament on the legalization of cannabis which is co-sponsored by a vast cross-party group of Italian MPs.

He was researcher at the Bocconi Institute for economics of energy sources, IEFE (1987-1990), and at Lombardy’s Research Institute, IRER (1990-1996), as well as Assistant professor for Economics and Agricultural Policies at Università Cattolica, Milan, from 1990 to 1995.
