Domenico Comino (born 27 September 1955) is an Italian politician, who also served as state minister.


Comino is one of the former leaders of Lega Nord.[1] He served as state minister for the EU relations in the first cabinet of Silvio Berlusconi in 1994.[2] Comino was one of the five Lega members in the cabinet.[3] He and four other Lega ministers resigned from office in December 1994 in order to vote against Berlusconi in the censure motion.[3]

Until 1999, he was the Lega Nord's president of the Piedmont region.[4] In 1999, Comino was expelled from Lega Nord and joined an electoral alliance with Forza Italia.[5]
