Rome marks ANZAC Day 2024

ANZAC Day commemoration at Rome War Cemetery.

The embassies of Australia and New Zealand in Rome will mark ANZAC Day 2024 on Thursday 25 April at 09.00.

The service will take place at the Rome War Cemetery on Via Nicola Zabaglia, in the Testaccio area, and will be followed by a morning tea on the grounds.

Originally held to commemorate members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey in world war one, ANZAC Day is now an occasion for the two countries to pay tribute to all members of their armed forces who died in both world wars and in action since.

Designed by Louis de Soissons and located within the Aurelian Walls near Piramide, the Rome War Cemetery contains 426 Commonwealth burials from world war two.
