Italy. Common Good (Italian: Italia. Bene Comune, IBC) was a centre-left political and electoral alliance in Italy created to stand at the 2013 Italian general election.
The alliance was announced on 31 July 2012 by the Secretary of the Democratic Party Pier Luigi Bersani and officially launched on 13 October, with the signature of a common political platform.
By the terms of the agreement, each party in the coalition stood separately in the 2013 general election. However, all parties agreed to support a single candidate as Prime Minister. Bersani was elected as the coalition's leader and candidate for prime minister in the primary election held on 25 November and 2 December.
In the election, the coalition gained a plurality in both houses of the Italian parliament, garnering 29.6% of the vote in the Chamber and 31.6% of the vote in the Senate. Although IBC had a solid majority of seats in the Chamber, it came up short of a majority in the Senate, thus leaving it unable to form a government on its own. Consequently, Bersani resigned from party leadership and the PD joined a grand coalition government, led by the PD's Enrico Letta.
