Incumbent mayor Walter Veltroni, of The Union ran for a second mandate.

The House of Freedoms, which initially considered not to present a unique candidate, in fact proposed the unitary candidacy of Gianni Alemanno, prominent member of the National Alliance and Minister for Agriculture in the second Berlusconi cabinet; before that, both Mario Baccini of the UDC, Minister for Public Function in the Berlusconi cabinet, and Member of the European ParliamentAlfredo Antoniozzi of Forza Italia considered the candidacy. There are also twelve other minor candidates.

Veltroni, member and former secretary of the Democrats of the Left, as well as former editor-in-chief of newspaper L’Unità, won the Mayor office in 2001, after having defeated Antonio Tajani of Forza Italia in the ballot round.

A majority of pollsters predicted an easy victory for Veltroni in the first electoral round.
