Edelweiss Aosta Valley ("Stella Alpina Valle d'Aosta", SA) is a Christian democratic and centrist Italian political party active in Aosta Valley.

It was founded in 2001 by the merger of the Autonomists and the Autonomist Federation. The Autonomists were basically the Valdotanian section of the Italian People's Party, one of the successors of Christian Democracy, while the Autonomist Federation was formed basically by former Autonomists Democrats Progressives, along with former Socialists and of the Republicans.

Soon later the Autonomist Federation re-gained its independence from SA. From 2001 to 2006, SA was represented in the Italian Chamber of Deputies by Ivo Collé. The party currently controls five seats in the Regional Council. Of the five regional deputies, four are former members of Christian Democracy and one is a former Republican.
