April 25 is the date conventionally chosen to commemorate the Liberation of Italy.

The outcome of the partisan struggle and of the Resistance, which began in September 1943, culminated with the popular uprising proclaimed by the National Liberation Committee.

The protagonists of the Resistance were not only the partisans of the armed gangs but also the civilian population that hid weapons and people at risk of their lives.

A particularly important role was played by women, both as ‘messenger’ runners, and as real companions of weapons, who conquered their first real emancipation, that of the vote, which in fact took place in the first free Italian elections, 2 June 1946.
