The Liberal Party (Partito Liberale, PL) was a minor liberal political party in Italy.

It was founded in 1997 by former members of the Italian Liberal Party who wanted to join the centre-right coalition led by Silvio Berlusconi. Most of its leading figures were also members of Forza Italia: Stefano De Luca, Carlo Scognamiglio, Egidio Sterpa, Ernesto Caccavale and Luigi Caligaris. Scognamiglio was elected President of the Italian Senate, while De Luca, Caccavale and Caligaris MEPs. In 2004 the party was transformed into the modern-day Italian Liberal Party after a merger with other liberal groups.
