Sample text

The poet and nationalist Gabriele D’Annunzio, at the head of a ragbag militia of 2,500 men, occupied Fiume in September 1919 and declared it part of Italy. Many of the soldiers involved were regular troops who had been withdrawn from Fiume after the final peace agreement. ) and brilliant use of propaganda, often against the democratic wishes of the people of Fiume themselves, particularly after a plebiscite in the city in December 1919. The inertia of the Italian government in the face of this open, armed, challenge to its authority was indicative of the power of the nationalist ideal, the dissatisfaction of many Italians with the peace settlement, and the overconfidence of the liberal elites in their own ability to manipulate the nationalist movement.

Many of the more anachronistic clauses of the 1912 law were updated in 1992 by a new law (L. 91), which brought Italy into line with some of the requirements of European legislation. For the first time, Italians could be dual nationals, although at a certain point, usually at the age of 18, they had to choose between the nationalities they possessed. Key rights (the vote, for example) forced dual nationals to choose which citizenship they preferred. 19 Other citizenship rights were linked to adoption procedures (an increasingly important phenomenon in contemporary Italy).

The most famous case of this removal of citizenship involved the Italian royal family, deposed by a referendum in 1946, and banned from Italy by a constitutional clause. The various debates over their possible return to Italy in the 1990s partly depended on the refusal of the ex-king to swear allegiance to the Italian Republic. In 2002 Parliament decided to rewrite the constitutional clause banning the royal family from Italian territory. The family duly applied for and received Italian passports.
