Today Italy celebrates the 150th anniversary of the unification of the various states to form the present modern country of Italy and there is a public holiday.  Tonight in the major towns and cities there are parties, live music and will be extravagant firework displays, a day of celebration Italian style!

Faccio un brindisi a tutti i miei amici Italiani, e vi auguro bene per i prossimi 150 anni!!
