Treaty of peace with Italy (1947)

The Treaty of Peace with Italy was a treaty signed in Paris on February 10, 1947, between Italy and the victorious powers of World War II, formally ending the hostilities. It came into general effect on September 15, 1947.[1]

The provisions of the treaty included:

Trieste and the surrounding area were incorporated into a new independent state called the Free Territory of Trieste. In 1954, the Free Territory of Trieste ceased to exist and Trieste and the surrounding area was divided between Yugoslavia and Italy. The city of Trieste itself became part of Italy. This division was finalised in 1977 by the Treaty of Osimo.

On December 24, 1951, Libya declared its independence as the United Kingdom of Libya.

After a United Nations plebiscite, Eritrea was federated with Ethiopia as was stipulated on December 2, 1950. Eritrea gained its independence from Ethiopia de facto on May 24, 1991, and de jure on May 24, 1993.

Italian Somaliland was under British administration until 1949 when it became a United Nations Trust Territory under Italian administration. Italian Somaliland combined with British Somaliland on July 1, 1960, and together they became the Somali Republic.

A subsequent annex to the treaty provided for the cultural autonomy of the German minority in South Tyrol.
