Montezemolo tipped to head Olympic bid

Ousted former long-time Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo's next project could be to secure the 2024 summer Olympics for Rome.

Ansa news agency and La Repubblica newspaper said the 67-year-old Italian, now chief executive of the Alitalia airline, could be unveiled in the role shortly.

"It's not my job to (choose) but I have to say he's perfect, because of his experience in international sports and business," international olympic committee member Mario Pescante told the Associated Press.

The AP report said Montezemolo also headed the organising committee for Italy's successful bid to host the FIFA world cup in 1990.
