The Internationalist Communist Party (Battaglia Comunista) is a left communist party in Italy.


It was founded in 1952 by the wing of the International Communist Party led by Onorato Damen, which opposed Amadeo Bordiga's advocacy of a "return to Lenin". Damen instead supported holding on to the theoretical developments of Bilan and the Italian left in exile in the thirties.

Battaglia Comunista took part in a series of conferences of the communist left in the late 1970s and early 1980s. As a result of these, in 1983 they established the International Bureau for the Revolutionary Party (later renamed as the Internationalist Communist Tendency) with the British Communist Workers Organisation.[1]

Battaglia Comunista claims to be the largest international tendency originating in the ICP.
