The Alliance of Progressives (Alleanza dei Progressisti) was a left-wing electoral coalition in Italy in 1994.

It was composed of:

Achille Occhetto of the Democratic Party of the Left was the Alliance's candidate for Prime Minister of Italy.

The Alliance suffered a huge defeat from the centre-right Pole of Freedoms/Pole of Good Government. In 1996 it was succeeded by The Olive Tree coalition, which included the Italian People's Party (diminished by the split of the United Christian Democrats in 1995), Italian Renewal and Segni Pact, and excluding the Communist Refoundation Party, which was an external ally and presented its candidates under the "Progressives" banner in single-seat constituencies in Central Italy.
