Liga Veneta


Liga Veneta (Łiga Vèneta, Venetian League, LV) is a regionalist political party based in Veneto, which in its ideology combines Venetism and fiscal federalism. Liga Veneta is by far the largest party in Veneto (35.2% in the last regional election) and the party of Luca Zaia, who has served as President of Veneto since March 2010.

It was the first party of its kind in Northern Italy, predating Umberto Bossi's Lega Lombarda by four years, and was a founding member of Lega Nord, a federation of regionalist parties of Northern Italy (which they call Padania), in 1991. Since then Liga Veneta is a "national" section of the federal party, thus retaining some autonomy.

Since June 2012 Flavio Tosi, Mayor of Verona, has been the party's leader.
