Festa della Liberazione - Liberation Day in Italy

Tomorrow is "Festa della Liberazione" or "Liberation Day in Italy", the day that commemorates the fall of Mussolini and the freeing of Italy by the Italian Partisans and Allied Forces (brief background here).

I wonder if Italians are finding it a little bittersweet this year considering all of the political strife that is enveloping the country at the moment? It also makes me as an American a little nostalgic for times when we could do things right too - like lead the liberation of Europe from the Nazis and Fascists...
