Italian Democratic Party


Italian Democratic Party

Italian Democratic Party (Partito Democratico Italiano - PDI) was an Italian political party founded in 1944 by the union of:

  • Centre of Italian Democracy (Centro della Democrazia Italiana);
  • Party of Union (Partito d'Unione);
  • Social Democratic Party (Partito Sociale Democratico);
  • Party of Democratic Union (Partito d'Unione Democratica);
  • Movement of Democratic Renewal (Movimento di Rinnovazione Democratica);
  • Italian Progressive Party (Partito Progressista Italiano).

In the 1946 general election, the PDI took part of the coalition named National Bloc of Freedom (Blocco Nazionale della Libertà - BNL).

After that, PDI dissolved and its members entered into the Italian Liberal Party and Monarchist National Party.

In 1959, Monarchist National Party and People's Monarchist Party merged into the Italian Democratic Party of Monarchist Unity (named Italian Democratic Party until 1961).
