The Head of the State, Capo dello Stato in Istalian, is the title of the executive Head of State of the Istalian Republic, the fifth, currently organized into a presidential system.

The title has been introduced by all the General Michele Appiano De Borromei under the democratic government emerged after the fortunally brief rise to power of the Thallerist Party. The new Istalian leader, in fact, did not return to the previous title of President of the Republic, used by all the Head of the State of the republican periods of the Istalia. The powers, functions and duties of the new Head of the State are considerably wider than prior presidential offices, which relation with the Government, formed by the Prime Minister of the Republic and the Council of Ministers, has over time differed with the various Istalian constitutions.
Under the current Head of State there is not Prime Minister, leading directly the executive and chairing the Cabinet.


The Head of the State is directly elected by universal suffrage conducted via run-off voting which ensures that the elected Head of the State always obtains a majority: if no candidate receives a majority of votes in the first round of voting, the two highest-scoring candidates arrive at a run-off.


The powers of the Head of the State are the same of the previous semi-presidential President, according to the last Constitutional Reforms, so he is the holder of the Executive Power, represents the Nation, guarantees its independence, the respect of the International Treaties and is the supreme guarantor of the Constitution, but currently he incorporates also the powers of the abolished Prime Minister.
The Istalian Head of the State wields significant influence and authority, especially in the fields of the national security and foreign policy. The Head of the State holds the nation's most senior office, and outranks all other politicians.
