Social Alternative

Alternativa Sociale (Social Alternative) was a coalition of political parties in Italy.

The coalition grew from Social Action, which was founded by Benito Mussolini's granddaughter Alessandra Mussolini after she left the National Alliance due to their attempts to move away from their fascist past.

Mussolini united her group with the Social Action for the 2004 European Parliament election, gaining one seat in the European Parliament. The group was committed to a strong Italian nationalism that celebrates and glorifies its past, and has been particularly critical of Gianfranco Fini's modernisation of the right.

For the 2005 regional elections, also the Tricolour Flame (Fiamma Tricolore) joined the alliance, only to leave it some months later.

In the 2006 Italian general elections the coalition was a member of the defeated House of Freedoms and won no seats. The alliance was disbanded in late 2006 and replace by a new pact between Social Action, New Force, the Social Idea Movement and the National Volunteers.

Famous quotes containing the words alternative and/or social:

    No alternative to the
    one-man path.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    The new supplants the old. Yet men’s minds are stuffed with outworn bunk. Educating the young in the latest findings of authorities and scholars in the social sciences is important. It is equally important to devise ways and means for aiding the middle-aged and old to reexamine hang-over unscientific doctrines and ideas in the light of recent discovery and research.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
