Luca Romagnoli (born 12 September 1961 in Rome) is an Italian politician and former Member of the European Parliament for Southern Italy with the neo-fascist party Tricolour Flame, being a Non-Inscrit (for a short time, ITS group member) in the European Parliament.

He sat on its Committee on Transport and Tourism, and was a substitute for the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs and a member of the Delegation for relations with Mercosur.

Romagnoli is a holocaust revisionist and claimed in an interview that he has "no elements to say whether gas chambers of extermination camps existed or not".[1] However, he later claimed that he was simply being misunderstood in an interview given to the journalist Enrico Mentana, clarifying his stance on the Holocaust.

On 8 November 2013, Luca Romagnoli, secretary of Tricolour Flame, together with the secretary of The Right Francesco Storace, the regent of Future and Freedom Roberto Menia, the leader of I the South Adriana Poli Bortone, Domenico Nania of the association Nuova Alleanza, Oreste Tofani of the association Nazione Sovrana, Antonio Buonfiglio of the association Il Popolo della Vita and Roberto Buonasorte, editor of the online newspaper Il Giornale d'Italia, founded the Movement for National Alliance, a federation of right movements inspired to National Alliance. On 9 December 2013 the Central Committee of Tricolour Flame distrusted Luca Romagnoli, because he joined this initiative without having preventively sought the opinion of the same Committee.

Following the expulsion from Tricolour Flame, Romagnoli founded his new political movement, Social Right.[1]
