Happy Liberation Day (and please, don't go shopping today!)



Many countries around the world
celebrate a day of liberation
and as the name suggests
it marks the day when a place is liberated
by an occupying army.

Today we celebrate the nation’s liberation
from nazis and Mussolini-led fascists.
The annual public holiday is marked by parades in many towns and villages
and community mayors laying wreaths at war memorials
In particular, Liberation Day is a day on which to honour
the fallen partisans of the Italian Resistance.
Check out these links
if you want to read more about the Festa della Liberazione:

Tutti i cittadini hanno pari dignità sociale
e sono uguali davanti alla legge
senza distinzione di sesso, di razza, di lingua, di religione,
di opinioni politiche, di condizioni personali e sociali.

È compito della Repubblica
rimuovere gli ostacoli di ordine economico e sociale, che,
limitando di fatto la libertà e l'eguaglianza dei cittadini,
impediscono il pieno sviluppo della persona umana
e l'effettiva partecipazione di tutti i lavoratori
all'organizzazione politica, economica e sociale del Paese.

All citizens have equal social status
and are equal before the law,
without regard to their sex, race, language, religion,
political opinions, and personal or social conditions.

It is the duty of the Republic
to remove all economic and social obstacles that,
by limiting the freedom and equality of citizens,
prevent full individual development
and the participation of all workers
in the political, economic, and social organization of the country.
