Festa della Repubblica

Today we celebrate the Italian National Day (Republic Day), by commemorating the institutional referendum of 1946, in which the people of Italy were called to choose between 'monarchy' and 'republic' as their nation's new form of government after the fall of Fascism.  We conclude today an ideal tryptic of celebrations, which started on April 25 with the commemoration of the Resistenza and continued through the Primo Maggio, our Labour Day. On Labour and Resistance to any forms of totalitarianism, violence and injustice our Republic is strongly founded and thrives.

Viva l'Italia! Viva la Repubblica!
