Diventerà Bellissima was founded in November 2014 by Nello Musumeci, former MEP and President of Catania Province and Fabio Granata, former Vice President of Sicily.[2]

In the 2017 Sicilian regional election, the party won 6.0% of the vote and 6 seats in the Regional Assembly,[3] contributing to elect Musumeci at the head of the regional government.[4] Few months later, on 18 December, DB had its constituent congress in Palermo, in which Nello Musumeci was elected president and Raffaele Stancanelli, coordinator.[5]

The party run in the 2018 general election within Brothers of Italy (FdI), a national conservative party led by Giorgia Meloni. In the election, Stancanelli succeeded in being elected in the Senate, thus he left his role as coordinator.
