Rainbow Aosta Valley
The Rainbow Aosta Valley (Arcobaleno Valle d'Aosta) is an Italian coalition of parties active in Aosta Valley, active since 2003 and since 2006 a member of the Autonomy Liberty Democracy coalition in general elections.
It is composed of the Federation of the Greens (whose local section, the "Alternative Greens", is particularly strong in the Region), the Communist Refoundation Party, the Party of Italian Communists, Democratic Left and some local far left groups. In the 2003 regional election the coalition won 7.9% of the vote and three regional councillors. In the 2008 regional election Rainbow won 5.6% of the vote and no regional councillors.
In 2010 the Alternative Greens chose to distance themselves from the far left and were merged into a new party named Autonomy Liberty Participation Ecology (ALPE), along with other two progressive parties, Valdostan Renewal and Lively Aosta Valley.
