Forza Italia

Forza Italia (Forward Italy, FI) was a liberal-conservative, christian democratic, and liberal political party in Italy, with a large social democratic minority, that was led by Silvio Berlusconi, four times Prime Minister of Italy.

The party was founded in December 1993 and won its first election soon afterwards in March 1994. It was the main member of the Pole of Freedoms, Pole for Freedoms and House of Freedoms coalitions, and is considered (by both insiders and outsiders) to have been very different from the other Italian political parties.

In November 2008 the National Council of the party, presided by Alfredo Biondi, officially ruled on the dissolution of Forza Italia into The People of Freedom, Berlusconi's new political vehicle, whose official took place in early 2009.
