Giulio Andreotti (born January 14, 1919) is an Italian politician of the now dissolved centrist Christian Democratic party who served as the 42nd Prime Minister of Italy from 1972 to 1973, from 1976 to 1979, and from 1989 to 1992. He also served as Minister of the Interior (1954 and 1978), Defense Minister (1959–1966 and 1974) and Foreign Minister (1983–1989), and he has been a Senator for life since 1991. He is also a journalist and author.

He is sometimes called Divo Giulio (from Latin Divus Iulius, "divine Julius", an epithet of Julius Caesar). The film Il Divo deals with Andreotti's ties to the Mafia and won the Prix du Jury at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.

Andreotti was born in Rome, into a family from Segni, and studied law there. During his university studies he was member of the Federazione Universitaria Cattolica Italiana (FUCI, or Italian Catholic University Federation), which was then the only Catholic university association allowed by the Fascist government, and whose members included many of the future leaders of the Italian Democrazia Cristiana. In July 1939 he became director of the FUCI's magazine Azione Fucina, while Aldo Moro was president of the association. When, in 1942, the latter was enrolled into the Italian Army, Andreotti succeeded him as FUCI's president, a position he held until 1944.
