On September the 8th, the high hierarchies of the Italian Fascist regime betrayed both il Duce and Italians and signed an armistice with the Allied forces, then fled the country together with the King leaving Italians to fight for their lives. And fight they did, through three years of grueling war, ferocious Nazi retaliations and the relentless hunt from the Fascists that still remained loyal to Mussolini. La Resistenza ended with the victory of April 25th, with Anglo-American forces entering many cities that had already been liberated. Their lives gave us our Constitution – which at Article 1 says that ‘Italy is a republic founded on labour’, and at the XII Temporary Disposition says that ‘the re-organization, under any form, of the dissolved Fascist party, is prohibited’. Today, the Constitution is being revised to include modifications required by the racist Northern League, articles are being distorted to submit it to financial discipline, and the heirs of our coward king have been recalled from exile and thrive among the richest in our country.
