The Union of the Venetian People (Union del Popoŀo Vèneto, UPV) was a Venetist political party active in Veneto.

History[edit]

The party was founded in 1987 by splinters from Liga Veneta led by Ettore Beggiato and Gianni Butturini.[1] In the 1990 regional election UPV won 1.9% of the vote (compared to the 5.9% of Liga Veneta) and Beggiato was re-elected to the Regional Council of Veneto.[2] Occasionally the party surapassed Liga Veneta: in 1991 local elections UPV gained 3.5% of the vote against 2.6% of Liga Veneta.[3] The party was merged into Liga Veneta in 1995, after that Franco Rocchetta and Marilena Marin, who expelled Beggiato from that party in 1987, had been expelled too.[4]
