Predecessor Forlani Cabinet
Successor Spadolini II Cabinet

The Spadolini I Cabinet, led by Giovanni Spadolini, was the 39th cabinet of the Italian Republic.

The government, in office from 28 June 1981[1] to 23 August 1982,[2] was led by for the first time in the republican history of Italy by a non-Christian Democrat Prime Minister, the Republican Spadolini. However, Christian Democracy (DC) maintained the majority of ministries, while forming a large coalition of five parties (Pentapartito) with Italian Socialist Party (PSI), Italian Democratic Socialist Party (PSDI), Italian Republican Party (PRI) and Italian Liberal Party (PLI).

The cabinet fell after the reject of the government's budget law, after that Spadolini resigned, on 7 August 1982.[3]
