Italy’s Republic Day – level 2

05-06-2018 07:00

Italy abolished monarchy and founded the republic in 1946. People celebrate the Republic Day every year on June 2nd. People hold a military parade in Rome, and planes drew the Italian flag in the sky.

Italy’s recent three months of political turmoil has ended. Italy has a new, populist government.

Difficult words: abolish (to end something officially), found (start), turmoil (trouble, chaos, no government), populist government (a government which says that it will do good things for the ordinary people).
