Italian journalist and politician David Maria Sassoli was the president of the European Parliament from 2009 until his death on 11 January 2022.

He was first elected to the European Parliament in 2009 and served as its president from 2013 to 2016. His cause of death is unknown.

His family is awaiting the results of the inquest.

The eulogy is likely to be long and detailed, as the reason for his death will not be known to the general public.

According to his family, Sassoli died in an Italian hospital after being admitted in September for pneumonia due to legionella.

He was unable to complete his work in Strasbourg and returned to his home country on 26 December.

The eulogy for Sassoli’s death was published in the Italian newspaper La Repubblica.

His wife, Alessandra Vittorini, is also devastated by his death.

The couple has two children together.

The Italian politician had been ill for several weeks and was taken to a Strasbourg hospital in September.

During October, he recovered sufficiently to return to work remotely. In November, he returned to work but was once again hospitalized on 26 December.

His three-year term as speaker of the chamber ended next week.

His death was caused by an immune system malfunction and pneumonia, a condition called legionellosis.
