Cultural Note: La liberazione

The Liberation was the conclusive moment of World War II in Italy, at the end of April in 1945, when the forces of the Resistance rose up in the big northern cities (Turin, Milan, Genoa), leading to the surrender and retreat of the German troops before the arrival of the victorious Anglo-American forces. It is commemorated with the Festa della Liberazione, on the 25th April every year (see also Resistenza).
