The South American Union Italian Emigrants (Unione Sudamericana Emigrati Italiani, USEI) is an Italian political party representing Italian minorities in South America, especially Argentina and Brazil. Its leader is Eugenio Sangregorio.

In the 2013 general election the party won 13.3% of the vote in the South American constituency and elected Renata Bueno to the Chamber of Deputies.[1] Bueno is the daughter of Rubens Bueno,[2] a long-time member of the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies for the Brasilian Socialist Party,[3][4] and was long close to the Italian Democratic Party and its leader Matteo Renzi.[5] In November 2015, however, after being associated for two years with the alternative Associative Movement Italians Abroad in the Chamber, Bueno joined Identity and Action, a centre-right party opposed to Renzi.[6]
