Dalemiani refers to the faction around Massimo D'Alema, a leading member of the Democratic Party, a political party in Italy.

Dalemiani are generally social democrats who want the party to join the Party of European Socialists[citation needed]. D'Alema organized his faction as Reformists and Democrats, welcoming also some Lettiani[citation needed] and some Populars[citation needed]. Historic Dalemiani include Peppino Caldarola, Pier Luigi Bersani, Anna Finocchiaro, Nicola Latorre and Marco Minniti[citation needed].

At the 2009 leadership election D'Alema supported Bersani.[1] However, since his election, Bersani gained autonomy[citation needed], so that journalists started to talk about Bersaniani.
