Liberation Day Italy History

Liberation Day commemorates the uprising of Italy’s people against the Fascist tyrants and Nazi domination. The uprising was successful and shortly after, fascist leader, Benito Mussolini, and his followers were exiled. This declaration marked the end of the Second World War for Italy and the birth of the Italian Republic. The Liberation resulted in the end of the Italian monarchy and the creation of a constitution.

Liberation Day is celebrated annually on 25 April in an effort to commemorate this turning point in Italian history. It was officially made a national holiday in 1949 and it has been celebrated annually since.
