Saturday, April 25, 2015 in Italy we celebrate the anniversary of 70 years since liberation from Italian Fascist regime. The anniversary of the liberation of Italy, often called Liberation Day, the anniversary of the Resistance or more commonly April 25, is celebrated April 25 of each year. It is an important day for the history of Italy as it represents the victorious struggle of military and political resistance of the partisans during the Second World War against the fascist government of the Italian Social Republic and the Nazi occupation.

This year the festival is dedicated to the partisan leader and former President of the PNA, Massimo Rendina, and Elio Toaff, former partisan and chief rabbi of the synagogue of Rome, who died just last April 19.
The event will present the associations of partisans and fighters. Alongside them, will be attended by representatives of the institutions Capitoline who coordinated the preparation of the event.
Will be screened several films that recall April 25 to 70 years ago, including the documentary “Red Poppies on the way to Rome”, made by journalist Roberto Olla also visible on this link at RAI Radiotelevisione Italiana.
“Red Poppies on the way to Rome”
“When the story is separated from justice, freedom is measured in crosses”, is a Polish verse of the song “Red Poppies” which tells the great battle of Monte Cassino in the spring of 1944. Seventy years ago, despite the devastation of the bombing, the road to Rome was full of poppies but was blocked by the stubborn resistance of the Nazi armies. To free the eternal city, during the four-month battle, fought and died young of many different peoples: the Americans of Texas, the British and the Australians, New Zealanders and the Maori, the nissei (nippoamericani) and Sikhs, the Gurkhas and the terrible Maghreb, guilty of so much violence, Canadians and Poles, the co-belligerent Italian patriots and Maiella Brigade. In the hands of the monks did the European culture and the people, who have been reconciled with the Germans, recognize that from Monte Cassino pass the roots of a united for peace. A documentary filmed on locations in the battle, in England, in Normandy, with historical footage from the archives unpublished prevenient American, British and New Zealand, made for the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Rome.
