Mayor Greppi speaks, as well as the Communist leader Longo, the Christian Democrat Achille Grandi and the Socialist Valcareni. Florence, Piazza della Signoria: from the tower of Palazzo Vecchio, that saw the glory-days of the Republican city-state, at the dawn of the Renaissance, trumpets blaze. This city recorded one of the highest percentages of pro-Republic votes in the referendum. Now, the Florentines, listen to the words of their mayor, Gaetano Pieraccini. The Republic, he says, should pave the way for perfect reconciliation among men in a spirit of full mutual tolerance, peace and love for all the people of the world. After the dramatic days of June 10 to 13, Humbert of Savoy leaves Italy. It's around 15h30 when he comes down into the courtyard of the Quirinale. The Presidential Guards (Corazzieri), salute him for the last time, with the honour due to a sovereign. Humbert shakes hands with Commander-in-Chief Colonel La Guardia and other officers. Once the greetings are over, the former King, with a convoy of three cars, leaves the edifice that since 1870 had been Italy’s royal palace. With the Mistral blowing that afternoon, the tricolour-flag flies for the last time with the royal coat of arms. Ciampino Airport: a four-engine Savoia-Marchetti 95 awaits the last King of Italy to transport him to Portugal, where his wife and children await him. The former King is pale and emotional a farewell to those whom he leaves behind, among them, the Minister of the Royal House, Marshal Messi. On his journey into exile Humbert II will be accompanied by Count Graziani, by General Cassiani and Duke Galarati Scotti, the Italian Ambassador in Madrid Meanwhile, on the tower of the Quirinal, the flag with the cross of Savoy is taken down, the only one, perhaps, that was still fluttering on a public building
