The party was founded in 1998 by the merger of the Autonomists Democrats Progressives, which included some Republicans, and the Autonomist People's Alliance, basically formed by former Socialists. In the 1998 regional election the party list, which included also some members of the Christian Democratic Centre and some of the United Christian Democrats, obtained 9.7% of the vote and four regional councillors.[2]

In the 2001 FA was merged with the Autonomists into Edelweiss (SA), but, following the 2003 regional election (in which SA won 19.8% of the vote), it re-gained its autonomy in 2004.[3]

In the Giorgio Lavoyer was appointed to the regional government.

In 2009 a group of Socialists, members of the Socialist Party at the national level were expelled from FA.[5] In 2013 a larger group of Socialists, led by Leonardo La Torre, a former party secretary, left[6] and joined the Valdostan Union.[7][8]

In the 2013 regional election FA ran a joint list with the Union of Christian and Centre Democrats.[9][10] The alliance did not prove successful as FA obtained a mere 2.2% of the vote and was excluded from the Regional Council, after 15 years of continuous presence.[11][12] As a result, Lavoyer resigned from party leader.[13][14]
