Italian Renewal (Italian: Rinnovamento Italiano, RI), officially the Dini List – Italian Renewal (Lista Dini – Rinnovamento Italiano, LD–RI) was a liberal[5] and centrist political party in Italy.

The party was founded in 1996 by Lamberto Dini, the outgoing Prime Minister, along with former Liberals, Socialists, Christian Democrats, Republicans and Social Democrats. The party joined the The Olive Tree centre-left coalition led by Romano Prodi. In the 1996 general election RI, which gave hospitality in its lists to the Italian Socialists, Segni Pact and Italian Democratic Movement, won 4.3% of the vote. In the event, party won 26 seats at the Chamber:

The party also won 11 seats at the Senate:

After the election Lamberto Dini became Minister of Foreign Affairs and Tiziano Treu minister of Labour in the Prodi I Cabinet.

In October 2001 the party joined Democracy is Freedom – The Daisy (DL), which became a unified party in March 2002. RI members in DL formed a faction within the party, named simply Renewal, consisting of around 10% of the party members. In 2007 several members of this association including Dini broke away from DL to form the Liberal Democrats.
