The Italian Communist Party (Italian: Partito Comunista Italiano, PCI) is a minor communist party in Italy.


The PCI, which took the name from the 1926–1991 Italian Communist Party, emerged in 2016 from the merger of the Communist Party of Italy (PCdI) with splinters from the Communist Refoundation Party (PRC), notably including Fosco Giannini's The Ernesto and Luca Cangemi, and minor groups.[1][2][3] The foundation of the new PCI came ninety years after the transformation of the old Communist Party of Italy into the Italian Communist Party.

After the founding congress, Mauro Alboresi was elected secretary by the party's newly formed national committee.
