The “Festa della Repubblica” is the Italian national holiday celebrated on the second day of June. Club Marconi has been celebrating this event with the people of Sydney and once again the club will be showcasing the best of the Italian culture.
Liverpool Champion reported that Marconi Club chief operating officer Tony Zappia said the traditions of Italian Republic Day, or Festa della Repubblica, dated back to the constitutional referendum of 1946, when Italian citizens overwhelmingly voted for a republic rather than a monarchy.
“It has since become a national holiday and a proud celebration of Italian culture the world over, including Australia, which boasts nearly one million people of Italian ancestry,” Mr Zappa said.
“Sharing the best of Italian culture with the people of Sydney, Club Marconi is hosting the biggest day on the Italian calendar”
The mass commences at 11am. The event is FREE!
Sunday, June 1
Club Marconi, Bossley Park
