National Blocs (Blocchi Nazionali) was an Italian coalition of the nationalist political right put together for the Italian general election of 1921, incorporating the electoral list of the liberal and former Prime Minister Giovanni Giolitti, the Fasci Italiani di Combattimento led by Benito Mussolini, the Italian Nationalist Association (Associazione Nazionalista Italiana) led by Enrico Corradini, and other right-wing forces.

The list obtained 19.1% of votes and a total of 105 MPs, including 35 fascists (including Mussolini) and 20 MPs for the Italian Nationalist Association. Almost all of the MPs supported the Mussolini government, which took office October 31, 1922, after the March on Rome. In 1924, the National Blocs were succeeded by Mussolini’s National List.
