The Fascism and Freedom Movement – National Socialist Party (Italian: Movimento Fascismo e Libertà – Partito Socialista Nazionale, MFL–PSN), called simply Fascism and Freedom Movement, is an Italian fascist political party. It was formed on 25 July 1991 by senator Giorgio Pisanò.


The Fascism and Freedom Movement always remained aloof from the area of so-called neo-fascist parties, which refuses agreements and / or alliances, stressing categorically not to be classified as a right-wing party. The party makes explicit reference to the ideals of the Italian Social Republic as corporatism, the socialization of the economy, taxation and monetary nationalism. Their ideology is based entirely on the thought of fascist leader Benito Mussolini, and has as its main objective the realization of Mussolini's strongly hierarchical corporate democracy based on social credit. The party is also in favor of a presidential republic, and expresses a strong sense of anti-Americanism and anti-Zionism. Fascism and Freedom was founded in 1989 as a political movement inside the Italian Social Movement, referring to Senator Giorgio Pisano and his weekly Candido. Finally, it separated from the MSI on 25 July 1991. In 2009, it added the words National Socialist Party (NSP) to its original name. The movement has been sued several times for alleged reconstitution of the dissolved National Fascist Party.

It is the only recognised party in Italy with the inscription "Fascismo" on its logo.
