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:

A frontier marker on the 1947 - settled Franco-Italian border in the Col de la Lombarde

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.

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

As provided by Annex XI of the Treaty, upon the recommendation of the United Nations General Assembly in Resolution 390 (V) of 2 December 1950, Eritrea was federated with Ethiopia on 11 September 1952. 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.
