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

History[edit]

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) and minor groups.[4][5][6] The foundation of the new PCI took place ninety years after the transformation of the old Communist Party of Italy into the old PCI.

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

In the 2018 general election, the PCI was part of the Power to the People electoral list,[7][8] which obtained 1.1% of the vote and no seats.[9] Soon after, the party left the list.[10] In July the PCI held its first regular congress.
