Giuseppe Conte (Italian pronunciation: [dʒuˈzɛppe ˈkonte]; born 8 August 1964) is an Italian jurist and politician. He was the 58th Prime Minister of Italy from 1 June 2018 until 13 February 2021.[3]

On 20 August 2019, he officially announced his plans to resign from the position.[4] However, eight days later, the parliament reappointed him as prime minister after forming a new coalition.[5]

On January 25, 2021, it was reported that Conte would officially resign the next day after losing his party's majority and coalition support in the Italian Senate.[6] He was replaced by Mario Draghi on 13 February 2021.
