“Costituzione della Repubblica italiana” and Japan
by Kohei Watanabe
Italy lost World War 2. And the constitution of Italy, “Costituzione della Repubblica italiana,” contains an article about pacifism.
Nowadays, some Italian people want to revise their country's constitution. For example, whether Italy should introduce a presidential government. The argument about the constitution is attracting many Italian people.
In Japan, revising the constitution is one of the most important matters. The Japanese constitution bans war and the keeping of any military power, however Italy has its own army for saving the country.
I think there is a deep relationship between the thinking about the Italian constitution and the thinking about the Japanese constitution.
