Italy during the 1970's?

I have a mini-presentation for Italian in a couple of days and I was wondering what are some interesting topics I could research on Italy during the 1970's? Can be vague or specific. Anything is helpful!


Answer on Italy during the 1970's?

The 1970s in Italy were years of social and political commitment throughout the country. The decade opened with the proclamation on the law on divorce, in 1970, and ended with the law on abortion, in 1978. Both laws where hot topics of debate, followed by referendum votes that split the population of Italy. Worker’s strikes and terrorist activities dotted the 70s and everybody had a political point of view on almost any subject.


I hope this helps.
