Trentino Autonomists (Italian: Autonomisti Trentini, AT), whose complete name was Trentino Autonomists – Gentians (Autonomisti Trentini – Genziane) was a regionalist centrist Italian political party based in Trentino.


The party was formed in 2000 by the merger of Integral Autonomy (led by Sergio Casagranda and Caterina Dominici), the provincial section of Italian Renewal (led by Sergio Muraro, a former member of Lega Nord Trentino) and splinters from the Trentino Tyrolean Autonomist Party (Dario Pallaoro).

In the 2003 provincial election the party ran in list with the Trentino Tyrolean Autonomist Party (PATT). The PATT-Genziane list won 9.0% of the vote and three provincial deputies, including Pallaoro for the Genziane. However, during the term of the Council, also Muraro and Dominici entered the Council in place of Franco Panizza, provincial minister since 2003, and Giacomo Bezzi, member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies since 2006.

In 2007 the Trentino Autonomists finally merged into the PATT.
