Movement for Italy

Movement for Italy (Movimento per l'Italia, MpI) was a short-lived conservative political party in Italy (2008–2009) which later functioned as a faction within The People of Freedom (PdL), a much larger centre-right party led by Silvio Berlusconi.

In September 2008 Daniela Santanché, spokeswoman of The Right and candidate for Prime Minister in the 2008 general election, left the party, after having fallen out with secretary Francesco Storace. Santanché opposed Storace's political line and instead proposed an alliance with the PdL.[1] In November Santanché launched her own party, which was to join the PdL soon, but not as a founding component.[2] Also The Right eventually joined the PdL-led alliance, without joining it.
