 Northern League (Italy) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Northern League (Italian: Lega Nord) is an Italian political party that advocates autonomy for a part of Northern Italy they call Padania (see the article for usage of the name).
The movement was founded in 1989, and became part of a governing coalition for the first time in Silvio Berlusconi's government in 1994; the League was instrumental to its demise by the end of the year.

Lega Sud -- the Southern League -- is Southern Italy's regional counterpart to Umberto Bossi's successful Northern League (Lega Nord), which seeks greater federal autonomy for what it calls Padania.

6rom that time on, the Lega Nord seemed to grow in popularity among the voting population, probably thanks to the talkative immediacy of its leader and the decreasing power of all the main parties, more than to its not so feasible programme.

 MotherJones SO93: The fall of Rome
The primary instrument of this revolution is the Lega Nord, or "Northern League," an organization that insists it is not a political party and that its members are not politicians.
In late 1989, the Lega (then known as the Lombard League, after the province where it was born) had a single seat in Parliament, held by maverick founder Umberto Bossi, and was virtually unheard of outside the most erudite circles of Italian political analysis.
In a continental Europe where rock-solid mass institutions and centralized national government have been articles of unflinching faith for decades, the new Italian politics is violently anti-institutional, dead set against the very notion of a political class, and local to the point of denying that nations have any useful function at all.

It features a more complex CoA: the shield is tieced per pale, or a bend gules (with three eagles, like the banner of Lorraine), gules a fess argent (Austria) and or six roundels gules (with the uppermost roundel contining three litlle fleurs-de-lis, like the flag of the Medici family).
Instead, it has a reproduction of the Etruscan Chimera known also as "the Chimera of Arezzo" since it was found in 1553 near the town of Arezzo (in eastern Tuscany) a bronze sculpture which is considered a masterpiece of the Etruscan art (now it is at the Archaeological Museum in Florence).
