Giovanni Legnini (born 6 January 1959) is an Italian lawyer and politician, former vice president of the High Council of the Judiciary.


Legnini graduated with a degree in law from the University of Teramo, and began his career as a lawyer in Chieti, Abruzzo.

From 1990 to 2002, Legnini was mayor of his hometown Roccamontepiano, supported by the Alliance of Progressives first and by The Olive Tree later.[1]

In 2004, Legnini entered the Senate, taking over the seat of Ottaviano Del Turco who was elected to the European Parliament.[1] Legnini was later re-confirmed to the Senate in 2006 and 2008 and was elected to the Chamber of Deputies in 2013.

After having been undersecretary in the Letta Cabinet[2] and the Renzi Cabinet[3], Legnini was elected to the High Council of the Judiciary, and on 30 September 2014 was appointed vice president of the CSM.[4]
