Republic Day

Today is Republic Day in Italy, a national holiday commemorating the establishment of the Italian Republic in 1946 following the Second World War and the fall of Fascism. Here, a band prepares to march near the Plaza la Scala. Image
They also opened up this "Government Palace" one block from our hotel that had previously been closed. It has a beautiful courtyard but I got reprimanded by four policemen when I tried to photograph it, so you'll have to settle for this exterior shot, and a glimpse of the back garden. Image
