the “Memorial Day”

A law of the Italian Parliament establishes the “Remembrance Day” in memory of the victims of foibe and Italians exiles from Istria and Dalmatia, to be celebrated every 10th February. The date is chosen in controversy with those Peace Treaties (signed in Paris on 10 February 1947) that had assigned Istria, the Carnaro, the city of Zadar with its province and most of Venezia Giulia (formerly part of Italy) to Yugoslavia.
