From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Franco Rocchetta (born 12 April 1947) is a Venetist politician.

Rocchetta was born in Venice. He was a founding member of Liga Veneta in 1978–1980, and its national president and practical leader. In 1989 he was a founding member of Lega Nord along with Umberto Bossi, Franco Castellazzi, Giorgio Conca, Gipo Farassino, Riccardo Fragassi, Marilena Marin, Bruno Ravera, Francesco Speroni, Carla Uccelli. He was elected federal president of that party in 1991 and 1994.

In July 1994 Rocchetta left the party before the end of a congress in which his wife and protegé Marilena Marin had been defeated by Fabrizio Comencini for party secretary. After his exit from Lega Nord, he unsuccessfully launched Liga Nathion Veneta.[1][2] He later joined the Federalists and Liberal Democrats and National Alliance, prior to leaving politics.[3]
