Civil Revolution (Italian: Rivoluzione Civile, RC) was a left-wing coalition of political parties in Italy.

The coalition was headed by Antonio Ingroia, a former anti-mafia prosecutor of Palermo from 1992 to 2012 and then director of a UN investigation into illegal drug trade in Guatemala in 2012.

The foundation of RC was preceded by the manifesto Io ci sto, presented by Ingroia on 21 December in Rome. Among the signatories of this appeal were Franco Battiato, Fiorella Mannoia, Luigi de Magistris, Leoluca Orlando, Milly Moratti, Massimiliano Bruno, Max Paiella, Sabina Guzzanti, Vauro and Enrico Fierro.[2] The coalition had an anti-corruption platform.[3]

In the 2013 general election the party obtained 2.2% of the vote, returning no seats in the Italian Parliament.[3][4] Soon after RC was dissolved on 2 April 2013,[3] and Ingroia launched Civil Action, a non-party association.[5]
