After the Fukushima nuclear accident (Japan, 11 March 2011), a strong opposition to the national nuclear programme led to a popular referendum: key legislation about the nuclear energy production in Italy were abrogated.

Through Law Decree 34/2011 the Governmente had already suspended (moratorium) the effects of the Legislative Decree 31/2010 for one year, and as a consequence of the referendum, nuclear plants can no longer be planned, sited or built on the Italian territory.
