On 1 October 2006 Fiori founded the Christian Democratic Refoundation party, of which he was appointed national secretary. However, the new political subject did not have success, and allied with Clemente Mastella's UDEUR and Giuseppe Pizza's new Christian Democracy to form the Christian Democratic Federation. On 23 March 2010, Rifondazione DC merged with Francesco Rutelli's Alliance for Italy.

In 1995 he was one of the founders of National Alliance (AN), collecting most of the members of the former post-fascist Italian Social Movement. He was Minister of Transportations in the first Silvio Berlusconi cabinet. Fiori abandoned AN in 2005, dissenting with some lay-oriented moves of secretary Gianfranco Fini, and moved to Christian Democracy for the Autonomies, of which he was named president. In July 2006, he was expelled by this movement with accuses of having organized an illegal national congress.

On 1 July 1992 he became undersecretary of the Ministry of Mail and Telecommunications in the Giuliano Amato cabinet, while on 6 May of the following year he was appointed as undersecretary in the Ministry of Public Health. When in 1993 Christian Democracy, then being wiped out by the Tangentopoli corruption scandal, voted for an alliance with former communist Democratic Party of the Left, Fiori, traditionally tied to the right-wing of DC, abandoned the party.
