Abstract

Antecedenti storici dell’elezione presidenziale del 2020 – Starting from former President Trump’s speech that propelled the storm of Capitol Hill on January 6th, the article provides an historical account of the transition of powers between administrations in the past decades and centuries. The analysis, on the one hand, highlights the traditionally peaceful nature of such transitions, while, on the other, it points to the instances when disputes concerning the electoral outcome occurred.
