From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Socialist Unity (Unità Socialista) was the name of a social-democratic political alliance which contested the key Italian general election of 1948, which decided the international alliances of Italy.

The list was formed in contrast with the communist-led and Soviet-funded Popular Democratic Front. Socialist Unity was formed by the Italian Socialist Workers' Party of Giuseppe Saragat and the Union of Socialists of former socialist leader Ivan Matteo Lombardo.

Socialist Unity reached the 7% of votes for the Italian Chamber of Deputies, gaining 33 seats. In the election of the Italian Senate, where the Unity ran together with laicist Italian Republican Party, it won 8 seats.

In following years, the links between the members of the Unity became closer, and the Italian Democratic Socialist Party was established.
