Italian Reformists

The Italian Reformists (Riformisti Italiani) are a social-democratic political party/association in Italy.

The group was launched on 26 November 2011 by Stefania Craxi, deputy of the centre-right The People of Freedom (PdL) party, undersecretary of Foreign Affairs in Berlusconi IV Cabinet and daughter of Bettino Craxi (leader of the Italian Socialist Party from 1976 to 1993). In her remarks at the group's founding convention, S. Craxi explained that the Reformists would have two main goals: uniting all Italian Socialists (most of them were in the PdL) and transforming Italy into a presidential republic.[1]

On 15 December 2011 S. Craxi announced that she was leaving the PdL.[2]

The party stood in the 2013 general election as a standalone list,[3] receiving just 0.02% for the Chamber of Deputies.[4]
