The Constituent Assembly (Assemblea Costituente della Repubblica Italiana) was a parliamentary chamber which existed in Italy from 25th June 1946 to 31st January 1948.
In the referendum of 2nd June 1946 voters had to decide whether the country would be a Republic (which it did) or a Monarchy. They would also choose members of the new Constituent Assembley who would write the new constitution.
The voting was as follows:
- 396 votes for De Nicola (Liberal Party)
- 40 votes for Cipriano Facchinetti (Republican Party)
- 32 votes Ottavia Penna Buscemi (Front of the Ordinary Man)
- 12 votes Vittorio Emanuele Orlando (left)
- 2 votes Carlo Sforza (PRI)
- 2 votes Alcide De Gasperi (Christian Democrats)
- 2 votes Alfredo Proja (Christian Democrats)
The main task of the assembley then began - creating a new constitution for the country. When this was completed the assembly was dissolved to be replaced by the new Parliament.
