Uomo Qualunque Front

Uomo Qualunque Front

The Uomo Qualunque Front ("Fronte dell'Uomo Qualunque", FUQ) was a short-lived national-liberal, poujadist and conservative party in Italy.

After a remarkable result in the 1946 general election (4.4%), the party joined forces with the Italian Liberal Party in the National Bloc and its decline was unstoppable.
