Anti-Fascism and the Resistance heritage are not only constituent values of the new bloc of political and social forces replacing the one previously dominant in liberal and Fascist Tuscany, but indeed represent a truly original character deeply rooted in both the popular strata and the leading élite of contemporary Tuscany. To this result a crucial contribution was given by the CTLN (Comitato toscano di liberazione nazionale), whose members, proposing themselves as a unitarian organ of government, above all ideological and political counterpositions, directed the battle for local autonomies and regional government, while promoting a broad process of renovation in all sectors of the ruling classes, not only at political and administrative level, but also in the economy and in civil life. The wideness and rootedness of the anti-Fascist option would strengthen with time, thus stifling the revival of the most reactionary positions and interests and favoring a flexible and manifold dialectic among the political forces within the region.
