The Inhabitants of the Territory Annexed to the Slovenia with the 1947 Peace Treaty who Opted for Italian Citizenship
Keywords:povojno obdobje, optanti
The paper presents the structure of those inhabitants from the territory annexed to Yugoslavia by means of a peace treaty with Italy in 1947, who, on the basis of its Article 19, opted for the preservation of Italian citizenship. The majority of those who presented their applications after 1947 were Italians who had left the territory before the end of the Second World War and only wanted to clarify their citizenship status. There were no autochthonous Italians in the area. Among the Slovene applicants there were many women married to Italians and quite a few of those who had transferred or fled abroad after 1945
