The Umbrian Communist Party was the leading party of the People's Republic of Umbria.
After 12 years of operating underground, the party was swept into power, right after the overthrowal of the Bastianini government. It led Umbria undisturbed from 1945 to 1989 when it suffered internal crisis and, after the People's Republic ceased to exist, the party was dissolved and reorganized into La Sinistra ("The Left"), which still governs Umbria in these days.
