The first Congress of the Democrats of the Left (DS), which took

place in Turin 13-16 January 2000, represented another stop in the

transformation of the former Italian Communists (PCI). The new

leader of the party – Walter Vetroni who followed Achille Occhetto

and Massimo D’Alema – tried to change the party’s politics, organization,

and culture. He planned these alterations to affirm a new

political strategy.
