Democratic Sicily (Italian: Sicilia Democratica, SD) was a regional centrist Italian political party active in Sicily.

The party was launched in November 2014 by Nicola Leanza [Wikidata] (elected on the UDC list), a long-time regional deputy, following a split from Article Four for internal disagreements during the formation of the 3rd Crocetta regional government.[2]

The Democratic Sicily group in the ARS, as well as by Leanza, was joined by other five deputies: Totò Lentini (ex UDC), Giambattista Coltraro (ex Megaphone), Carmelo Currenti (ex Musumeci list), Luisa Lantieri (ex Great South) and Salvatore Cascio (ex PID).[3][4][5]

In May 2015 Leanza died,[6][7] leaving the future of the party quite uncertain.[8][9] Indeed, the party did not participate in the 2017 regional election and is no longer active since the end of 2017.
