HistoryEdit

The event was established in 1879, and it was originally called the Premio Omnium. It was initially open to horses aged three or older and contested over 3,500 metres. The first running was won by Macedonie. It was cut to 2,400 metres in 1882.

The race continued as the Premio Omnium until 1955.[1] It was renamed the Premio Presidente della Repubblica in 1956. This was to commemorate the tenth anniversary of Italy becoming a republic.

The Premio Presidente della Repubblica was run over 2,200 metres in 1966. It was extended to 2,300 metres in 1967 and reduced to 2,000 metre in 1968. In 2016 it was reduced to 1,800 metres and downgraded to Group 2 having previously been contested at Group 1 level.[2]

The race was closed to three-year-olds in 1988.
