In application of the XII transitional and final disposition of the Constitution, the Scelba Law is approved (645/1952) which provides for criminal penalties for anyone attempting to reorganise the dissolved fascist party and for all associations or movements or groups of people pursuing anti-democratic aims. The crime of apology of fascism also applies to anyone who glorifies, threatens or uses violence as a method of political struggle, advocating the suppression of the freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution or denigrating democracy, its institutions and the values of the Resistance, or carrying out racist propaganda.
