78 years after Italy’s wanton declaration of war against Greece on October 28, 1940, the Italian President, Sergio Mattarella, will officially apologize on behalf of the Italian people to Greece.

Mattarella will attend the military parade on the occasion of ”OXI day” in Thessaloniki and will address the public, apologizing for Mussolini’s unjustified decision to invade Greece during World War II.

According to Kathimerini daily, the Italian President will apologize for the plight caused to the Greek people by Italy’s fascist leadership and all the deaths caused by its unjustified decision.

This is going to be the first apology ever to be issued by Rome at the highest possible level.
