FI ("Forza Italia" = Go, Italy http://www.forza-italia.it)
- The FI has been founded for the 1994 elections as a new force
on the center-right, instead of the already moribund Democrazia
Cristiana. Founding-father and leader was and is Silvio
Berlusconi, the current Italian prime minister (and by far most
influential single person in the Italian television and other
media). Originally a merger movement of the right center without
the usual party organization, it has become a more or less normal
party over the years, however largely focused on Berlusconi.
It currently holds 176 out of 630 seats in the Chamber of Deputies (Camera dei Deputati) and 81 seats out of 325 in the Senate (Senato). In the European Parliament the FI deputies belong to the European People's Party (Christian Democrats).
The logo shows the fluttering FI flag on a white circle; it can be found at cedweb.mininterno.it:8890.
The flag is diagonally divided green-white-red with the diagonal inscription (in white) "FORZA ITALIA". Fotos of the flag (with Berlusconi) at:
www.forza-italia.it/foto15.html, foto19.html and foto21.html.
