Anniversary of the Arengo (San Marino)

An annual national public holiday that commemorates the day in 1906 when 94.89% of San Marino’s citizens voted by referendum to end oligarchic rule and establish democratic elections. The Arengo was the name of the assembly that ruled San Marino from the fifth century BC to 1243 as well as the name of the popular councils that governed political life in Northern Italy’s free ‘comuni’ during that time.
