The celebrations for the 25th April took place not just in Barga (article here) but also included for the third year running, “the liberation walk” up to Sommocolonia via the old mule track. A huge participation this year with people almost queing up at one point to go up the track.
A fine day with perfect weather and the perfect place for a picnic and to listen to some music up by the tower in Sommocolonia.
The 25th April is the day that Italy commemorates the liberation of the country by Allied troops in the Second World War.
This morning in Barga was held the annual 25th April celebrations to commemorate the liberation of the country by Allied troops in the Second World War.
