Angelo Borrelli (born 18 November 1964) is an Italian government official, who is serving as Head of the Civil Protection, since 8 August 2017.[1]


Borrelli was born in Santi Cosma e Damiano, near Latina in Lazio region. He graduated in Economics at the University of Cassino, becoming auditor and tax advisor.[2]

In 2000 he entered the National Office for Civil Service. In 2002 he was appointed executive of the Civil Protection Department, the government body in Italy that deals with the prediction, prevention and management of exceptional events. From 2010 to August 2017 he served as Deputy Head of the Civil Protection, and when Fabrizio Curcio resigned, Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni appointed him new Head of the Civil Protection.[3]

On 31 January, the Italian Council of Ministers appointed Borrelli Extraordinary Commissioner for COVID-19 Emergency.[4][5] On 22 February, the government announced a new decree, including the quarantine of more than 50,000 people from 11 different municipalities in Northern Italy.[6] Penalties for violations ranged from a €206 fine to 3 months' imprisonment.[7] Italian military and law enforcement agencies were instructed to secure and implement the lockdown.[8] Schools were closed at ten municipalities in Lombardy, one in Veneto and Emilia Romagna. All public events were cancelled and commercial activities were halted or were allowed to resume only until 6 pm.[9][10] Regional train services to the most affected areas were suspended—trains were not stopping at Codogno, Maleo and Casalpusterlengo stations.[11][12]
