    The Italian Parliament (Italian: Parlamento italiano) is the national parliament of the Italian Republic. It is the representative body of Italian citizens and is the successor to the Parliament of the Kingdom of Sardinia (1848–1861) and the Parliament of the Kingdom of Italy (1861–1946). It is a bicameral legislature with 945 elected members and a small number of unelected members (parlamentari). The Italian Parliament is composed of the Chamber of Deputies (with 630 members or deputati elected on a national basis) and Senate of the Republic (with 315 members or senatori elected on a regional basis, plus a small number, currently six, of senators-for-life or senatori a vita, either appointed or ex officio). The two Houses are independent from one another and never meet jointly except under circumstances specified by the Constitution of Italy.
