The Italian presidential election of 1964 was held in Italy from 16 – 28 December 1964, following the resignation of incumbent President Antonio Segni on 6 December 1964, because of a thrombosis. Only members of Parliament and regional delegates were entitled to vote. As head of state of the Italian Republic, the President has a role of representation of national unity and guarantees that Italian politics comply with the Italian Constitution, in the framework of a parliamentary system.

On the twenty-first round of voting, the leader of PSDI and former President of the Constituent Assembly Giuseppe Saragat[1] was elected President with 646 votes out of 963. Saragat was the first left-wing politician to become President of the Republic.[2]
