"Lista di Pietro - Italia dei Valori" (List di Pietro - Italy of the Values www.antoniodipietro.org) - This is another "one-man band" party, founded and led by Antonio di Pietro, former public prosecutor in Milano. As such, di Pietro was one of the protagonists in the so-called "Mani pulite" (clean hands) action against the widespread corruption in politics and economics (involving, inter alia, former prime minister Bettino Craxi and current prime minister Silvio Berlusconi). Di Pietro and his group first took part in the foundation of the "Democratici" of Prodi, but later became independent again. They did not ally themselves with the center-left coalition for the 2001 elections, but presented their own list. The party only won 3,9% of the votes and it failed to get a deputy elected, as there exists a 4%-hurdle in the proportional vote.
The logo is described (at www.antoniodipietro.org
) as follows:
"Linea di circonferenza azzurro europa con all'interno del cerchio, nella metà superiore del campo, su sfondo azzurro decrescente dall'alto verso il centro la figura stilizzata di un gabbiano in quadricromia con i colori - da sinistra verso destra in rosso, giallo, verde, celeste-azzurro (quest'ultimo da sfumato a intenso) e con la scritta "Lista" in maiuscolo corsivo di color nero, posta in posizione centrale e spostata a sinistra del cerchio, sopra la scritta "DI PIETRO" (di colore azzurro europa) in maiuscolo, a caratteri cubitali, corsivo, con il puntino sulla i di colore rosso e con quest'ultima lettera più piccola rispetto alle altre, la "o" in parte sotto l'ala destra del gabbiano; inoltre con la scritta "ITALIA DEI VALORI" in maiuscolo, a semicerchio lungo la circonferenza interna inferiore del cerchio stesso".
(A circular line of European blue, with in the upper half of the field, on a background of blue fading from top to center, the stylized four-coloured figure of a sea-gull with the colours - from left to right - red, yellow, green, azure (the last from toned down to intense) and with the inscription "Lista" in upper-case italics of black colour, in a central position and shifted to the left of the circle, over the inscription "DI PIETRO" (of European blue colour) in very large upper-case italics, with the dot on the i in red colour and this latter letter smaller than the others, the "o" in part under the right wing of the sea-gull; furthermore with the inscription "ITALIA DEI VALORI" in upper-case letters, in a semi-circle along the lower inner side of the circular line.)

IdV (Italia dei Valori = Italy of Values)
IdV was founded in 1998 and revived in 2001, led by Antonio di Pietro, famous former public prosecutor in Milano. It was always fiercely against Berlusconi and his allies. However, IdV's position in the different left alliances was changing. For instance, in 2008, it was closely allied with the PD, whereas in 2013 it became part of the unsuccessful Rivoluzione Civile list. It currently holds no seats in the Camera dei Deputati or the Senato.
The flag shown at the top of this page is the first version with the first logo (2001-2005). The current (if I am counting correctly, the fourth, shown above) logo (used since 2006) shows the same main elements (rainbow-coloured sea-gull, party name, leader's name), but is slightly different. The flag has always been white with the respective logo [1,2,3,4].
