Milano Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri

On September 11, 2017, “The Journey of the Constitution,” a project sponsored by the Prime Minister ‘s Office and coordinated by the Mission Structure for Anniversaries of National Interest, began from Milan.

Lombardy’s capital city was the first of 12 stops that will see the charter tour in several Italian cities. Each of the cities is associated with one of the first twelve articles and a theme, around which opportunities for meeting and dialogue will be promoted.

The inaugural ceremony was held in Palazzo Reale, in the presence of Mayor Giuseppe Sala, Chairman of the Historical and Scientific Committee for Anniversaries of National Interest Franco Marini, Minister for Sport with responsibility for Anniversaries of National Interest Luca Lotti and Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.

“I am proud that the Journey of the Constitution begins in Milan,” said Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala, “Democracy, referred to in Art. 1, the protagonist of the Palazzo Reale exhibition, is a value that Milan feels is its own and will always defend with determination.”

The four personalities then visited the exhibition at the Sala delle Cariatidi in the Royal Palace, signing a “virtual” Constitution themselves.

After this first stage, the Constitutional Charter will stop in Catania, Reggio Calabria, Bari, Cagliari, Aosta, Rome, Venice, Florence, Trieste, Assisi and Reggio Emilia.
