In the absence of a proper conservative political tradition, and in the face of the Fascist legacy still affecting the political Right, in the Republican era Italian anti-communist, anti-statist and libertarian sentiments were mostly labelled as "moderate", and found a political collector mostly in the Christian Democracy party. When Christian Democrats, between 1950s and 1960s, started shifting to the Left in the Centrosinistra coalition and a new radical Left emerged, many movements that claimed to represent a stronger anti-communist and/or traditionalist opinion saw the light in the Catholic political area, but none of them earned much space in the mainstream debate, neither obtained electoral consensus. Still, they contributed to lay the foundation for the new, more right-centred political season of the Dc in the late '70s and in the early '80's.
