Elections[edit]

Mayoral and Council election, 1995[edit]

The election took place on 23 April.

For the first time under the new electoral law, citizens could vote directly for the mayor; before this, the choice was made by the City Council. For the first time in municipal political history, there were no longer parties such as the Christian Democracy, Italian Socialist Party or Italian Communist Party: the main parties were Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia and the Alliance of Progressives, made up of center-left parties.

The main candidates were the then-incumbent socialist mayor Giorgio Morales, supported by Forza Italia, and the university teacher Mario Primicerio, independent but supported by the Alliance of Progressives.

On 23 April 1995, Primicerio won the election and became the first elected mayor of Florence.
