Photos of the ceremony for the Republic Day


Tuesday morning in Rome and Codogno, in the province of Lodi, there was a ceremony to remember June 2, 1946, the day when there was the institutional referendum that was to decide the form of government of the Italian state: the Republic won with a discard by two million votes, and since then on June 2nd the Republic Day is celebrated.

Usually there is a military parade at the Imperial Forums and the laying of a laurel wreath by the President of the Republic to the Unknown Soldier, the war memorial located in the Altare della Patria in Piazza Venezia; this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the military parade was canceled and there was only the usual flight of the Frecce Tricolori and the laying of the laurel wreath by the president, Sergio Mattarella.

After the ceremony in Rome, Mattarella was scheduled to visit Codogno, where there was the first coronavirus case confirmed at the end of February: Mattarella arrived in the city shortly before 12, where he met local and regional authorities. At around 12, he visited the city cemetery to remember coronavirus deaths. The president of the Lombardy region Attilio Fontana was also present.

In the evening, Mattarella will return to Rome for a concert in the courtyard of the National Institute of Infectious Diseases “Lazzaro Spallanzani”.
