Government Tambroni

A single-party government, led by the Christian Democrat Fernando Tambroni, is born, supported by the votes of the Italian Social Movement, the neo-fascist party born in 1946 for direct inspiration from the experience of the Italian Social Republic. A wave of street protests broke out in the country, especially in Genova and Reggio Emilia, where the police fired on the crowd, killing 5 protesters (including some former partisans). In the same year, the military Prosecutor General Enrico Santacroce ordered the “provisional filing” of 695 case files containing investigative documents on killings and massacres committed by Nazis and Fascists during the period 1943-1945.
