Day of the Sacrifice of Italian Labor in the World

Like every year, on August 8 we commemorate the Day of the Sacrifice of Italian Labor in the World.

This date coincides with the anniversary of the mining tragedy in Marcinelle, Belgium, which occurred in 1956 and in which 262 miners lost their lives, including 136 Italians.

On this occasion, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Hon. Luigi Di Maio, sent a message to all Italians abroad. To read the message click here.
