Longo, Luigi

   An important figure in the European communist movement, Longo helped to found the Italian Communist Party in 1921 and was party leader from 1964 to 1972. He fought in the Spanish Civil War with the international brigades, and led partisan units against the fascists in northern Italy in World War II. After the war he was deputy to Palmiro Togliatti in the Italian Communist Party until becoming its leader, and as leader he helped to take the party in a direction away from Soviet communism and influence and toward Eurocommunism.
