The Slovenian-Italian Cultural-Historical Commission (1993—2000) was a joint bilateral commission the members of which were appointed by Republic of Slovenia and Republic of Italy by the exchange of notes in October 1993. It was established with the task of conducting a comprehensive in-depth study of all the relevant aspects of the history of political and cultural relations between the two nations, including the tragic periods. Although the initiative was launched at the governmental level, the bilateral commission was independent in its work.

Co-chairperson from the Slovenian part of the Commission was Milica Kacin Wohinz. Members included France Dolinar, Boris Gombac, Branko Marušic, Boris Mlakar, Nevenka Troha and Andrej Vovko. After Boris Mlakar resigned from the Commission, he was replaced by the writer Aleksander Vuga; then, in March 1996, Boris Gombac resigned, and Boris Mlakar was again included in the Commission.


Co-chairperson from the Italian part of the Commission was Sergio Bartole. Members included Fulvio Tomizza, Senator Lucio Toth, Fulvio Salimbeni, Elio Apih, Paola Pagnini and Angelo Ara.
