In July 2009 the party was formed as Communists – Popular Left (Comunisti – Sinistra Popolare) after the expulsion of Marco Rizzo from the Party of Italian Communists for having supported the IdV's candidate Gianni Vattimo in the 2009 European election. The first congress of the party was held in November 2010.
In 2013 it changed its name into Communist Party – Popular Left (Partito Comunista – Sinistra Popolare), while during its first congress in January 2014 the party chose to change its name into Communist Party.
On 21 January 2017, during the second congress of the party, Rizzo has been reconfirmed as General Secretary of PC.
