It represents territorial subdivisions and is a crucial part of the legislative procedure, sharing equal power with the Chamber of Deputies in terms of approving laws and constitutional amendments. The Senate also plays a crucial role in situations such as declaring a state of emergency and impeachment proceedings. The members of the Senate, known as senators, are elected by Italian citizens aged 25 or older.
