Festa della Repubblica returns to Pompeii

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

At press time, a scaled-back Festa della Repubblica was in the works for June 6 at the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii in Chicago. Hosted by Comitato Tricolore Italiani nel Mondo, the event celebrates the birth of the Italian republic. The occasion will be marked by an 11 a.m. Mass at the shrine, followed by a wreath-laying ceremony at Columbus Plaza in Arrigo Park. Reservations for the Mass are a must. (312-421-3757) A procession and street festival are possible additions if state and city restrictions are sufficiently lifted. For an update, call Carlo Vaniglia at 708-217-1004.
