The Day of National Unity and the Armed Forces is an Italian national celebratory day. It was established in 1919 to commemorate the Italian victory in the First World War, a war event considered the completion of the unification process of the Risorgimento, as it allowed Italy to annex Trento and Trieste. For this reason, the Italian intervention in the First World War is considered the fourth Italian war of independence.
The feast is on 4 November, the date of the entry into force of the armistice of Villa Giusti (signed on 3 November 1918), which sanctioned the surrender of the Austro-Hungarian Empire to Italy.
