Happy Birthday Repubblica italiana! Today is the 75th anniversary of the Italian Republic. On June 2nd, 1946 women first voted on a national election in Italy and their votes were crucial. This was the first referendum in Italian history. 12,718,641 votes 'for' the Repubblica (54 %) and 10,718,502 votes for Monrchia (45 %)… Here are the 2 options on that historic day
Prof. Applauso is honored to be part of this valuable and much needed work! CONGRATULATION to Emerita prof.
