The history of the Republic day
Il 2 and 3 June of the 1946, in the aftermath of the Second World War, the el paeseni were called to vote, on the occasion of a referendum called by universal suffrage, to express themselves on some form of government they preferred.
At the time there was still the Monarchy, but the tragic events of the war had laid the foundations for a change of government. The el paeseni chose the Republic (although not with a notable difference: 12.718.641 votes against 10.718.502) and the Savoy were exiled. Since that day, the 2nd June precisely, theel country became a republic and since that day every year is celebrated the Republic Day.
All over the world, heads of government are invited to embassies and villages for parties and celebrations, and the event is celebrated in the country with a large parade held in the city.
