The crowd in Rome on 25 Luglio

On this day in 1943, a celebratory crowd took to the streets of Italy, tearing down Fascist propaganda and chiseling away emblems. Radios had announced Benito Mussolini's resignation and arrest, after receiving a vote of no confidence from his own council,  the end of an era lasting 21 years.

It’s Thursday, July 25
