Today as 75 years ago, “Italians and Italians, together, for a new Italy”. It is a message of hope for “the rebirth of the country”, the one sent by President Sergio Mattarella for the Republic Day. A wish that coincides with the citizens’ desire to restart: yesterday, in the path between the Quirinale and the Altare della Patria, where Mattarella laid the commemorative crown of the fallen, many greeted the president’s car. No military parade this year either, but the passage of the Frecce Tricolor– has thrilled. Together with Mattarella there were the highest offices of the state, starting with Prime Minister Mario Draghi and the presidents of the Chamber and Senate, Roberto Fico and Elisabetta Casellati. “To the Armed Forces – underlines Mattarella – goes the country’s gratitude for the value shown in the complex and delicate emergency that threatens our health”.
Only in Basovizza (Trieste), the party was spotted by unknown persons who posted some billboards – “June 2, 2021 Italia shit” and “Trieste is free territory”, written in Slovenian not entirely correct – at the base of the monument to the Foiba.
