Italy On This Day

Learn more about Italy's rich culture and history
Have you ever wondered what the stories are behind some of the street signs in Italy

For instance, what happened in Italy on April 25, 1945 to cause every town in Italy to have a street named Via XXV Aprile? 


That’s one of the more obvious ones to work out as it is the date of Italy’s liberation from the Germans in the Second World War.

But what did Giacomo Matteotti do to have a street named after him? Answer: He stood up to Mussolini in parliament and was later kidnapped and murdered.

And who were all those kings called Victor Emmanuel and why didn’t they reign for very long?
