Alleanza Cattolica (in English Catholic Alliance) is an Italian Catholic association whose aim is "to study and spread the social doctrine" of the Catholic Church.

It strives to follow the teachings of the Popes, and so trains its members in the papal teachings. They also provide spiritual training, with a stress on traditional Catholic activities such as pilgrimages, adoration of the Eucharist, and the use of the rosary. They also follow the Ignatian spiritual exercises.

One of their points of emphasis is to provide formation in the face of the prevailing secularization in Europe. It runs the magazine Cristianità, translated as Christendom.

While its official website in mainly in Italian, it has a small section also in English.
