Italian Republic Day

June 2 marks Italian Republic Day. It celebrates the day when Italians voted to abolish the monarchy in 1946 so their country could become a republic. A military parade takes place  on Via dei Fori Imperili, passing in front of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. It is the one day of the year that the Quirinale Palace, official home of the President of Italy, open its gardens to the public.

This was the scene on Via Cavour early this morning as the final preparations were made for the parade later today:
