Italians say no to nuclear power

Published on: Last updated:

The decision of whether or not to produce nuclear energy sometimes involves governments as well as their populations. In Italy, a country which was a pioneer in the civil nuclear industry, the Tchernobyl disaster worried people. In 1987, the government gave the population the opportunity to vote for or against the production of nuclear energy. The ‘No’s won and Italy has since ceased all nuclear production on its soil whilst continuing research in this field so as not to rule out a return to nuclear power one day.
