From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Italian Socialists (Socialisti Italiani, SI) were a social-democratic political party, active in Italy from 1994 to 1998.

It was founded on 13 November 1994, immediately after the dissolution of the Italian Socialist Party, which had been plagued by corruption scandals exposed by the Mani pulite investigations. The party was led for its short life by Enrico Boselli.

At the regional elections of 1995 the Socialisti Italiani formed a list with Democratic Alliance and Patto Segni, which was called Pact of Democrats. The results, however, were disappointing.

For the general elections of 1996, the Italian Socialists joined the list of Italian Renewal, a brand new centrist party led by Lamberto Dini, within the Olive Tree coalition, acquiring in total 8 deputies (Giuseppe Albertini, Enrico Boselli, Aldo Brancati, Vincenzo Ceremigna, Giovanni Crema, Sergio Fumagalli, Paolo Manca and Roberto Villetti) and 5 senators (Livio Besso Cordero, Ottaviano Del Turco, Giovanni Iuliano, Maria Rosaria Manieri and Cesare Marini).

In 1998 the party merged with the Italian Democratic Socialist Party, a portion of Labour Federation, a portion of the Socialist Party and the Socialist League to form the Italian Democratic Socialists (SDI).
