The group was founded in April 2011 by Adolfo Urso, Andrea Ronchi and Giuseppe Scalia as a "moderate" faction within Future and Freedom (FLI) in opposition to the party's "radicals" (Italo Bocchino, Fabio Granata, etc.). In May Ronchi resigned from president of FLI's national assembly. In June the three left the party altogether. Since then, they have functioned as an external faction of The People of Freedom (PdL), the party of which they all belonged before being founding members of FLI in July 2010.
The group functions as a small associate party of The People of Freedom (PdL). In November 2011 Ronchi was appointed by PdL secretary Angelino Alfano to the delegation for the European People's Party's congress in Marseille. In this respect, the party's goal is to unite all Italian "popular" forces.
