He was President of Banca Popolare di Milano from 1950 to 1952,[1] President of the Italian Senate from 1953 to 1967, and was also temporarily acting head of State, in the period between the resignation of Antonio Segni and the election of Giuseppe Saragat in 1964. Merzagora was named senator for life in 1963.[2]

He was run as a candidate of the Italian Christian Democracy Party, and was affiliated to this party during his whole political career, although he never became its official member.
