Festa della Liberazione

25 Apr

In Italy, April 25th is a national holiday celebrating the country’s liberation from Nazi occupation in 1945.

Although it is quite chilly in Cortona, the band marched through the streets and placed a wreath  at the statue dedicated to those who fought and died for freedom.



An important day to remember, especially for those of us who love being in Italy.
