Premio Presidente della Repubblica

The Premio Presidente della Repubblica is a Group 1 flat horse race in Italy which is open to thoroughbreds aged four years or older. It is run at Capannelle, Rome, over a distance 2,000 metres (about 1¼ miles), and it is scheduled to take place each year in May.

The event was established in 1878, six years before the inauguration of the Derby Italiano. It is presently the first Group 1 race to be run during the Italian flat racing season.
