What are we celebrating?

Festa della Repubblica (Republic Day) is the Italian National Day and Republic Day, celebrated on the 2ndof June each year. It commemorates the institutional referendum of 1946 when the Italian population was called to decide what form of government (monarchy or republic) to the country after the Second World War and the fall of Fascism.

 

After 85 years of monarchy, with 12,717,923 votes for and 10,719,284 votes against, Italy became a Republic, and the monarchs of the House of Savoy were deposed and exiled. This is one of the most important Italian national holidays which, like July 14th in France (Storming of the Bastille) and July 4th in the USA (Independence Day), celebrate the birth of the nation.
