Non-Liberation Day

April 25th, Bologna (Italy). The celebrations for the 75th anniversary of Italy's Liberation from fascism are different from those of the previous years. For the first time in history, Italy cannot celebrate its April 25th with demonstrations in the streets because of the lockdown declared in the entire country to contain the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. The population, forced home by the lockdown measures, has been invited to watch the celebrations on TV or via streaming.
