Trentino Project (Italian: Progetto Trentino, PT) is a Christian-democratic political party active in Trentino.

PT was formed in July 2012 as a split, led by former regional minister Silvano Grisenti, from the Union for Trentino (UpT).[2][3]

In the 2013 provincial election the party supported Diego Mosna, entrepreneur and president of Trentino Volley,[4] for President. Mosna was endorsed also by the Trentino Civic List,[5] Stop the Decline, Administer Trentino, Together for Autonomy and Autonomy 2020. Mosna won a mere 19.3% of the vote and was trounced by Ugo Rossi of the Trentino Tyrolean Autonomist Party, who garnered a landslide 58.1%.[6] PT however emerged as the fourth largest political force of Trentino, by winning 9.0% of the vote (the UpT got 13.3%)[7] and 4 provincial councillors plus Mosna, who was elected as defeated candidate.[8]

In December 2014, during the party's first congress, Marco Bettega was elected president to replace Mauro Dorigoni.[9]

In March 2015 Grisenti was convicted of corruption[10][11] and, consequently, abandoned politics.[12][13] The PT participated in the successive Trento municipal election in coalition with Lega Nord Trentino, Forza Italia, Trentino Civic List and Brothers of Italy: in the event, the party won 3.8% of the vote, less than most of its coalition parties.[14][15]

In January 2016, during the party's second congress, Marino Simoni was elected as new president.[16] In April the PT signed a federative pact with the Populars for Italy (PpI), a minor Christian-democratic party represented in Parliament.[17][18]
