Italian term or phrase: on. prof.
il Presidente On. Prof. Marco Rossi
Is this Professore onorario? Do I translate it, leave it out?

English translation:Onorevole Professore
Explanation:
Hard to tell without a context (he's the president of what?) but "On." stands for Onorevole, title given to members of the parliament (both senatori and deputati).
It seems Marco Rossi is both a member of the parliament and a university teacher.

PS Whether to leave it out or not, it depends on the nature of the text. Same thing about the need to translate it or leave it in Italian.

agree  Alison Kennedy: I would leave the title in Italian in italics and provide a footnote that the gentleman is a member of parliament and university professor. This is one of the few cases where I would leave the Italian titles - avv, dott, ing can be left out

agree  esoft: yes. "Onorevole" stands for Hon. -- Honourable; this appellation is also used in other parliamentary systems to address members of parliament.
