In 2003 he was the strongest challenger to Daniele Capezzone for the leadership of the Italian Radicals, on a platform based on free-market and the hidden proposal of joining Silvio Berlusconi's House of Freedom's coalition.

He was elected to the Chamber of Deputies in the 2006 general election on the list of Forza Italia, being the only member of the Liberal Reformers to take part in the newly-elected parliament.
