    Italy's April 25 against nazi fascism and mafia


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     giannantonio shot these pictures of April 25 celebrations in Reggio Emilia, Italy, commemorating the country's liberation from Nazi Germany and the fall of Benito Mussolini's fascist regime. It's one of the most important events in modern Italy's story because it marks the definitive end of the fascist regime in Italy,' he said. 'Today, after 67 years, Italy has to free itself from another fascism, the Mafia in all its forms.'

    The April 25th is a national holiday in Italy. The anniversary of the liberation from Nazi fascism. In all cities, mayors, representatives of the political partys, representatives of armed forces, veterans and ordinary people celebrate their regained freedom. So in Reggio Emilia, a city awarded the Gold Medal of the Resistance, many people, many non-Italians, recalled that day in 1945. Today, April 25 may also be the day against the mafia and illegal. I reported this event.
