The Veneto Autonomous Region Movement (Movimento Veneto Regione Autonoma, MVRA) was a Venetist political party active in Veneto.

MVRA was founded in 1987 by splinters of Liga Veneta (LV) led by Geppino and Umberto Vecchiato and by Giulio Pizzati's Liga Federativa Veneta (LFV). The party included also Flaminio De Poli, who had been one of the most outspoken independentist figures in Veneto so far and who had been particularly critical of the alliance between Liga Veneta and Lega Lombarda.[1][2][3]

In the 1992 general election MVRA gained 1.5% of the regional vote.[4][5]

By 2000 the party was merged into Liga Veneta Repubblica (LVR).
