Autonomy Liberty Participation Ecology (French: Autonomie, Liberté, Participation, Écologie, ALPE) is a regionalist[2] political party active in Aosta Valley, Italy, whose progressive ideology mixes elements of social democracy,[2] green politics[2] and social liberalism. The party is a member of the European Free Alliance.[3]


ALPE was founded in January 2010 by the merger of five groups:[4][5][6][7]

Carlo Perrin, a former senator, was elected first co-ordinator, later president, of the party.[8]

In the 2013 Italian general election ALPE was part of the Autonomy Liberty Democracy (ALD) coalition and ALPE's Patrizia Morelli stood for the Senate, but both ALD candidates (the other being Jean-Pierre Guichardaz of the Democratic Party) were defeated.[9][10] In the 2013 regional election ALPE obtained 12.4% of the vote and 5 seats in the Regional Council.[11][12]

In March 2017 ALPE, along with the Progressive Valdostan Union (UVP), Edelweiss (SA), and For Our Valley (PNV) formed a new cabinet without the Valdostan Union (UV), under President Pierluigi Marquis (SA). ALPE, which entered the regional government for the first time, was represented by Albert Chatrian as minister of Budget and Finances, Fabrizio Roscio minister of Productive Activities, and Chantal Certan minister of Education and Culture.[13][14][15][16]
