Red Moors (Italian: Rosso Mori, RM) is a regionalist and social-democratic political party in Sardinia.

The party was founded in 2009 as a left-wing split from the Sardinian Action Party, after this had signed an electoral pact with The People of Freedom, the main centre-right party in Italy. In the 2009 regional election the RM won 2.5% of the vote, despite not being on the ballot in three provincial constituencies out of eight, and one regional councillor, Claudia Zuncheddu.[2] The list did better in the province of Sassari (4.2%) and the province of Nuoro (3.3%).[3]

In the 2010 provincial elections the Red Moors improved their share of vote and were particularly strong in Medio Campidano (7.1%), the province of Nuoro (4.2%) and the province of Cagliari (3.1%).[4]

In January 2011 Zuncheddu left the party in order to join Independence Republic of Sardinia.[5][6] This caused a major upheaval within the party, which was left without representation in the Regional Council.[7]

However the party pushed back and, in the 2014 regional election, it won 2.6% of the vote and two regional councillors.[8]
