6/4/1946 Alcide De Gasperi's letter

Manuscript on paper of the Presidency of the Council of the Ministers to Falcone Lucifero, minister of the Royal House of Savoia on the occasion of the 1946 institutional Referendum for the choice of the government form.

Mr. Minister,

I send to you the data received by the Department of the Interior until 8 o'clock of this morning. As you will see they are partial results that don't allow any conclusion. Minister Romita still considers possible the republican victory. I, personally, don't believe that rebus sic stantibus - it is possible to reach such conclusion.
Cordially,

Brief Signature

P.S. The figures are still confidential.

With this letter Alcide De Gasperi professed himself skeptic of the victory of the Republic in Italy. The partial data to which reference is made in the writing originated from the sections of the southern regions that also after the declaration of the final results they will be in favor of the Monarchy, while the northern regions, especially the Lombardy, will particularly show a large republican majority. It follows an image of the original letter:
