Lion of Saint Mark (Leone di San Marco) was a short-lived political party active in Veneto and the forerunner of many Venetist parties. It is named after the symbol of the Republic of Venice, the Lion of Saint Mark.

The party was founded in 1921 by Italico Corradino Cappellotto, a member of the Chamber of Deputies for the Italian People's Party. In the 1921 general election the party won 6.1% of the votes in the Province of Treviso.[1]
