On Friday, 2 June 2023, on the occasion of the 77th anniversary of Republic Day, institutional ceremonies and traditional initiatives are planned to celebrate the beginning of Republican Italy. In the presence of the highest institutional offices, the President of the Republic pays homage to the Altare della Patria in Piazza Venezia by deposing of a laurel wreath with a tricolor ribbon. At the same time, the Frecce Tricolori will fly over the skies of Rome and, to follow, the Military Review at the Imperial Forums, the traditional parade born in 1948.
Finally, the Ministry of Culture has decided to give free access to state-owned museums, archaeological areas and parks and monumental complexes, including, in the absence of a separate exhibition route and a separate ticket, spaces where exhibitions or temporary displays are set up. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., it is also possible to visit Palazzo Madama, home of the Senate of the Republic. To gain access to the palace, it is necessary to collect a ticket by presenting yourself at the entrance on the same day it is open to the public, from 8:30 a.m. onward. Each visitor has the opportunity to request, while supplies last, a maximum of four tickets.
Republic Day is the day all Italians express a feeling of belonging to Italy, pride in its history, and of what it has been able to build over the years. History based on a Constitutional Charter. The Italian Republic was born on 2 June 1946: the popular referendum called to choose the institutional form of the State and to elect the representatives of the Constituent Assembly marked the beginning of the life of Republican Italy.
