Today is Italy's liberation day. On this day of year 1945 partisan insurrections in Milan and Turin freed those cities from the Nazi and Fascist occupation. It took a few more days to actually end the war, but that is the date that was later chosen as national holiday.
I am grateful to all the people that fought for a free country and for putting an end to the Fascist and Nazi regimes. I am also grateful to all the people that starting from those days and to the present time worked and work for building a united and peaceful Europe of friend countries and people.
There is still a lot of work to do and a lot of dangers to be aware of: peace is never acquired for ever and it faces new challenges every decade. I hope that through the efforts of many people one day the whole world will live in peace and freedom.
Happy liberation day! Buona festa della liberazione!
