ROME (Reuters) – Fabrizio Saccomanni, chairman of Italy’s biggest bank UniCredit <CRDI.MI>, has died suddenly, a person with knowledge of the situation said on Thursday.

Saccomanni, 76, formerly a top executive at the Bank of Italy and also economy minister, had attended UniCredit’s results presentation in Milan on Wednesday.

The source confirmed a report of Saccomanni’s death published by daily Corriere della Sera on its website. UniCredit declined to comment.

Saccomanni was appointed chairman of the board of UniCredit, a non-executive role, in April last year. The bank is run by Chief Executive Jean Pierre Mustier.
