Italy's Liberation Day falls on April 25, this Thursday.
The day, a national holiday, commemorates the end of World War II and of Nazi occupation of the country.
Our Word of the Week is therefore LIBERTA’, freedom.
To be free is essere libero/a.
Liberation Day is Festa della Liberazione.
Below is a song by singer-songwriter, actor and playwright Giorgio Gaber, “La Libertà” (Freedom) where he sings the famous words, “libertà è partecipazione” (freedom is participation).
