Founded on 4 December 1989 following the merger of several regional autonomist movements in northern Italy, the Lega's main political objective was to make Italy a federal state.

In this respect, it was able to adopt a constitutional reform in 2006, approved by the Parliament, which was unfortunately rejected in the subsequent referendum in all regions except Lombardy and Veneto.

The party is now present throughout Italy and regularly participates in government.
