This is an alphabetical list of the present MPs, senators and European MPs from Italy that have received final conviction, not obstructed by statutory terms.

Politicians who have been found guilty, but were amnestied or acquitted on grounds of statutory terms (such as Giulio Andreotti, Silvio Berlusconi and Massimo D'Alema) are not supposed to be in this list.

Politicians found guilty, but no longer present in either parliament (as Bettino Craxi), are neither supposed to be included.
