About Italian Republic Day:
A year had already passed from 25 April 1945, when Sherman tanks paraded the streets of Milan, the last part of Italy to be liberated. Alongside the soldiers, children and young adults jumped on these big beasts and after spending years being afraid of them, they were beginning to consider them vehicles that brought them back to freedom.
A year later, 2 June 1946, the Italian people were called to freely vote after a long time of it being denied to them. They had to decide which new institutional asset post-war Italy was going to embrace. Monarchy or Republic?
The Italians gave their verdict attending the ballot offices in droves. A few days later, the Italian Republic was declared, with the consequent exile of King Humbert II and his family to Switzerland.
