Popular Construction (Italian: Cantiere Popolare, CP) is a centre-right political party in Italy.

The Populars of Italy Tomorrow (PID), a Christian-democratic party based in Sicily which emerged in 2010 as a split from the Union of Christian and Centre Democrats (UDC), was the coalition's main component. Other members include Popular Action (AP), the Christian Movement of Workers (MCL) and the Extended Christian Pact (PACE).[1]

In the 2012 Sicilian regional election CP won 5.9% of the vote and 4 regional deputies.[2]
