The National Bloc of Freedom (Blocco Nazionale della Libertà) was a short-lived Italian political coalition of monarchist parties, most of which participated to the foundation of the National Monarchist Party. Its symbol was a star.
It contested the Italian elections of 1946, where it received a 3% of votes and elected 16 deputies, and lost the contemporaneous referendum about between republic or monarchy, due to vote-rigging by the republicans.
