Italy did not suffer near so much as the other losing powers in WWII. Perhaps this was because Italy had changed sides in 1943 and many of her men had fought against the Germans. Nonetheless Italy did suffer quite a lot. * The Italian colonial empire was stripped away - every last acre. * The country had seen much hard fighting up and down the peninsula and the destruction of towns and cities was horrific. The nation was financially ruined. * The armed forces were decimated, not so much with casualties but loss of equipment. For example, the once proud navy of Italy was essentially nonexistent by wars end. * Small territories to the northeast were taken away from Italy and given to Slavs to govern. On the positive side, Italy was allowed free elections (which oddly, produced a strong showing by communists, gathering about 25% of the vote). Italy remained unified. The nation was not occupied by the Soviets such as were various other loosing nations....and thus the country was not enslaved, raped, pillaged and looted. Italy was allowed to rejoin the family of nations rather quickly - NATO, Common Market (now the EU), United Nations, etc.
