History

The Zoli Cabinet was the cabinet of the Italian government which held office from 20 May 1957 until 2 July 1958, for a total of 408 days, or 1 year, 1 months and 12 days.[1]

This cabinet was the first one who has been supported by the neo-fascist Italian Social Movement; but Zoli, a strong anti-fascist, resigned the post of Prime Minister soon after it became clear that he would have needed to rely on the votes of the neo-fascists to form a majority in the Parliament. He was then convinced by President of the Republic, Giovanni Gronchi, to remain in the post until the natural dissolution of the Italian Parliament in 1958.
