The claims for an independent Padania started in the 90s, after the foundation of the Lega Nord. A pro-independence and Euroskeptic party, the Lega Nord was founded by Umberto Bossi, Roberto Maroni, Mario Borghezio and by others.
In 2015 the Lega Nord became one of the greatest parties in Italy, and the most popular among citizens, especially in northern Italy.
After winning the regional elections in the north, the Lega Nord asked the Parliament for a referendum for the independence of Padania. The referendum was fixed for the 10th September 2015.
At the end of the referendum there was a landslide victory for the independence of Padania.
