Italian National Day
Festa della Republica is the Italian National Day and Republic Day. A national holiday in Italy, this commemorates the day in 1946 when Italians voted to abolish the monarchy and form a republic. Ever since, small festivals, concerts, and parades are held throughout Italy as well as at Italian embassies in other countries. Spectacular Republic Day celebrations take place in Rome, including a military parade presided over by the President of the Italian Republic in his role as Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.
An annual symbol of freedom for all Italians, it is, for the rest of us, a chance to celebrate all things Italian, such as our array of talented cultural presenters.
