The Garibaldian Antifascist Partisan Movement of Italy (Italian: Movimento Garibaldino antifascista Partigiani d'Italia, abbreviated GAPI) was a political party in Italy. GAPI was founded by Sante Garibaldi at a congress in Rome August 8-14, 1945.[1][2] GAPI supported a democratic, republican and federalist constitution of Italy.[2] The party published the weekly La Pattuglia ('The Patrol').[2][3]

Sante Garibaldi died in the summer of 1946.[1]

The party contested the Napoli-Caserta constituency in the 1946 Constituent Assembly election. It obtained 1,922 votes (0.19% of the votes in the constituency).[4] The party again contested the Napoli-Caserta constituency in the 1953 general election, obtaining 762 votes (0.06% of the votes in the constituency).[5]
