The author analyzes the social and political situation in Italy after 1945. He gives the reasons that caused the holding of constitutional referendum in June 1946 and, than, the convergence of attitudes among leading political forces in reviving Italy about the fundamental values a basis which had to provide a basis for the system of government of a new republic. The article also provides an analysis of the impact of the Catholic-Democratic, Liberal-Democratic and Socialist-Marxist traditions on the content of the new constitution. The author makes an attempt to indicate an extent of the contribution of each of these traditions on such content and to describe the real place of that constitution among the national basic laws of those days. Its role was undoubtedly significant.
