When is Republic Day?

SL Europe, freight forwarder inform , always celebrated on June 2nd. This is Italy’s National Day.

Republic Day (Italian: Festa della Repubblica) marks the referendum of 1946, which resulted in the creation of the Italian republic.

History of Republic Day

Italy became a nation on March 17th 1861, when most of the states of the region and the two Sicilies were united under King Victor Emmanuel II, hitherto king of Sardinia.

The father of Italian unification was Count Camillo Benso di Cavour, the Chief Minister of Victor Emmanuel.

Rome stayed under the rule of the Papacy for nearly 10 years and became part of the Kingdom of Italy on September 20th 1870. This is the final date of Italian unification.

On June 2nd 1946, a referendum on the monarchy led to the establishment of the Italian republic, and Italy adopted a new constitution on January 1st 1948. Male members of the royal family were sent into exile because of their association with the fascist regime and were only allowed to return to their country in 2002.

Italy’s constitution now forbids a monarchy to ever rule again

In 1977, the national holiday was moved to the first Sunday in June, for economic reasons to avoid the holiday having a negative effect on working hours. It stayed on the Sunday until 1999, when June 2nd was made the official date.

Italian exports shipments to non-EU countries decreased by 9.9% in 2020, thus recording the worst trend since 2009, despite the rapid recovery that started in May. Istat notes this in the latest report in which it also gave outcome of the results for the month of December.
For more than 6 percentage points, the decline is explained by the drop in sales of capital goods and non-durable consumer goods. The contraction, spread to all the main outlet markets, was lower than the average for Switzerland, the United States, China and Japan, while the contraction was greater in India, ASEAN countries and OPEC countries.

Particularly in December, trade with non-EU countries dropped in both directions: exports decresed by 4.6%, while imports decreased by 1.3%. Overall, Italian imports in 2020 recorded a contraction of 15.3%, for more than two thirds caused by the collapse in purchases of energy products.

However, it should be noted that the October-December 2020 quarter is an improvement compared to the previous one. In particular, exports grew by 4.0%, supported mainly by growth, energy (+ 12%), durable consumer goods (+ 7.9%) and capital goods (+ 5.2%).

Milan Malpensa reopen Terminal 1: from June 15 Terminal 2 closes, which has handled all flights for almost three months, and operations resume from the larger and more modern terminal. And you do it amidst a thousand safety precautions.The minimum threshold for reopening the T1 was three thousand daily passengers: Armando Brunini, CEO of Sea, had prudently indicated a date between June 15 and July 1, but the one for 15 was already circulating as a more realistic forecast, especially in light of the re-start of Easyjet, with several “domestic” flights (ie internal) to which they will gradually add the international ones.

How Milan Malpensa Terminal 1 reopens

Sea has already prepared all measures to prevent contagion risk. At this point he only expects the ENAC go-ahead, the National Civil Aviation Authority, but all are already ready for the effective reopening of Terminal 1. Accompanied, in parallel, by the Temporary “disposal” of T2, who from mid-March and for exactly three months took charge of managing all the (very few, at the beginning) remaining passengers.
