«Italy is a democratic Republic based on labor. Sovereignty belongs to the population, always within the limits and the methods expressed in the Constitution. »
It is precisely article 1 of the Italian Constitution that solemnly stipulates the result of the referendum occurred on 2 June 1946: Italy is a Republic.
In 2021 we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the birth of the Italian Republic, which took place precisely on 2nd June 1946 following the institutional referendum issued to establish the type of Italian government after the end of Second World War.
Between 2nd and 3rd June 1946 this referendum, to which for the first time also women were allowed to participate with their vote, put Italians in front of a crossroad: the choice between monarchy or republic.
With a majority of approximately 2 million votes, the republican solution won and starting from the 2nd June of the following year, Italy has always celebrated this event as a national holiday, considering it a symbol of the fundamental values of our nation: freedom, peace and democracy.
