Biography

After graduating in Medicine at the University of Sassari, Campus began his career teaching in his own alma mater. Meanwhile, he joined the Italian Social Movement and he later took part in the foundation of Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia, with which he is elected to the Italian Senate in 1994 and in 1996. During 1996, he left Berlusconi's party to join Gianfranco Fini's National Alliance.

He left his seat in the Senate in 2000, once he was elected Mayor of Sassari, supported by the whole Pole for Freedoms. In 2005, at the end of his term, Campus did not run again for mayor.

In 2009, Campus is elected regional councilor of Sardinia for The People of Freedom, being the most voted candidate in the city of Sassari.

In 2019, Campus ran again for the seat of Mayor of Sassari with the support of a coalition of centre-right civic lists: after ranking second in the first round, Campus won the run-off and was elected Mayor 14 years after his last experience.[1]
