Description:
The People of Freedom (, PdL) is a centre-right political party in Italy. With the Democratic Party, it is one of the two major parties of the current Italian political system.

The party was launched by Silvio Berlusconi on 18 November 2007 and officially founded in a party congress on 27–29 March 2009, when Forza Italia and National Alliance were merged together. Apart from Berlusconi, the PdL is led by a secretary, Angelino Alfano, and two coordinators, Ignazio La Russa and Denis Verdini. Its leading members include Giulio Tremonti, Roberto Formigoni, Franco Frattini, Maurizio Sacconi, Gianni Alemanno, Mariastella Gelmini and Giancarlo Galan.

In coalition with Lega Nord, the party currently forms Italy's government.
