Filippo Mancuso (22 July 1922 – 30 May 2011)[1] was an Italian judge and politician. In 1995 he was Italy's Minister of Justice in the government of Lamberto Dini.[2] The Italian Senate voted a motion of no confidence against him and this fact was the first time during the republican period. The left wing and Lega Nord complained about the review of the Mani pulite pool during Tangentopoli. He was elected for the first time as deputy in Italian general election, 1996 with Forza Italia party and he was confirmed in the 2001 general elections. He left Forza Italia in 2002, because he was not elected to the Constitutional Court of Italy because of opposition of the left wing. Mancuso agreed with Silvio Berlusconi to nominate another person for the Supreme Court, possibly Mario Serio, but then Forza Italia denoted Romano Vaccarella, a close friend of Cesare Previti. After 2006 Mancuso retired to private life until his death
