Church-State relations in Italy

How to harmonize relations between two sovereigns having such different characters as the State and the Church. Rome is both the capital of a State and a religion having a universal calling. This State has been governed for thirty years by a party which associates itself with christianism. The relation between Church and State are defined by agreements incorporated in the Constitution. A situation this complex can only create friction, which sometimes occurs on a national level ; for example, the dispute over divorce and abortion legislation. At the same time the Church makes it clear that the Christian-Democratic Party is not the Church’s party and that it is not against modifying the agreements signed with the Italian government provided that its independance and sovereignty are preserved.
