Summary:After an unprecedented thirteen days of voting, the Italian parliament finally chose a new President of Italy on December 28, 1964. The man they selected was Guiseppe Saragat - but he had to wait until the 21st ballot before he got a majority. A life-long Socialist, Saragat had been exiled from Italy during Mussolini's regime. He was 66 when he became President and he held the post for seven years.
