"Emma Marcegaglia was set to be named the head of Italy's Confndustria national employers' association, in a major first for her country's male-dominated business elite."


Emma Marcegaglia è stata nominata capo di Confindustria d'Italia, l'associazione nazionale dei datori di lavoro, nella prima, per importanza, parte eletta del mondo imprenditoriale, dominata dai maschi, del suo Paese.

My perplexities concern "was set to be named" and "in a major first for her country's..".

    We'll await the natives but I would say "Stava per nominarsi" or "Stava per essere nominata" for "She was set to be named". I can't offer a suggestion for the second.
