History in Rome: Remembrance Cobblestones

On April 25 Italy will celebrate Liberation Day, a day to remember the country’s liberation from Nazi occupation and fascist rule at the end of World War II. President of the republic, Giorgio Napolitano, will lay a wreath on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier at the Vittorio Emanuele monument at 9am in Rome’s Piazza Venezia.

In Rome there are engraved remembrance cobblestones to honor the memory of some those who were murdered by the Nazis. At Via Madonna dei Monti 82 (a small street behind Nicolas Inn), there are twenty cobblestones to commemorate the people that lived at this address.
