Liberation Day is celebrated every year in Italy onApril 25to commemorate the end of the war against the Nazis and Fascists. For readers ofRoma&più, we have selected a series of interesting initiatives to mark this day organized by some towns in the province of Rome – an opportunity to spend a lovely spring holiday out of the city.
We start in theTiberValleywith two lovely initiatives. One is the Festival della Biodiversità e mangiare Pappardelle al Sugo di Cinghiale (combined Biodiversity and Pappardella with Wild Boar Festival) in the splendid old town of Nazzano, while perhaps also taking advantage of a sunny day for a boat trip on the Tiber River. Our other choice for adventure-lovers is to go to Campagnanofor the"Andiamo a macinare il grano"(Let’s go mill some wheat)excursion from Prataccio to the Mola di Mezzo mill with a sack of grain, and, after lunch, the flour will be used to make little home-made rolls.
Music lovers – specifically fans of rock music – should make their way to theColli and Castelli Romani, where inGenazzano on April 24 and 25the"Fuochi nella notte"rock festival and accompanying sausage fest will take place.
Last but not least, is theAnieneValleywith theFesta di Primavera di Arsoli(Arsoli Spring Festival) which not only offers a series of free guided tours to places of interest in this art and culture-filled town, but will also host the "Pizzafritta" festival with many traditional dishes to enjoy.
In short, all the ingredients for a fun-filled Liberation Day in the province of Rome.
