Constitution of the Italian Republic


Article 3. All citizens have equal social dignity and are equal before the law, without distinction of sex, race, language, religion, political opinion, personal and social conditions. It is the duty of the Republic to remove those obstacles of an economic or social nature which constrain the freedom and equality of citizens, thereby
impeding the full development of the human person and the effective participation of all workers in the political, economic and social organisation
of the country. Art. 41. Private economic enterprise is free. It may not be carried out against the common good or in such a manner that could damage safety, liberty and human dignity. (...)
