The Communist Party of Italy (Italian: Partito Comunista d'Italia, PCdI) is a communist party in Italy.

The PCdI, which took the name from the 1921–1926 Communist Party of Italy, emerged in 2014 from a transformation of the Party of Italian Communists (PdCI), a communist party launched by splinters of the Communist Refoundation Party in 1998. Before becoming a tiny party, the PdCI was a party of government and controlled dozen of seats in the Parliament.[1]

Cesare Procaccini, a metalworkers' trade unionist who had replaced Oliviero Diliberto as PdCI's leader in 2013, has been the party's secretary since its foundation, while Manuela Palermi, a former senator, is its president.
