Earlier this month we brought you a report that Luca di Montezemolo – the longtime but recently ousted Ferrari chief – was to take up a new position as the chairman of Alitalia. And now the troubled but resurgent Italian airline has confirmed his appointment as part of its new board of directors.
Luca di Montezemolo may be 67 years old, but he's not quite ready to retire just yet. Not, at least, if the latest reports emanating from Italy are to be believed. According to Reuters, the longtime former Ferrari chief is due to be named chairman of Alitalia.
