Salus Populi Suprema Lex Esto @Juice Berry
Ave Followers :-) Next Thursday, June 2nd, is the national celebration of the Italian Republic, when in 1946 the istitutional Referendum, after the universal suffrage, were rolled out in order to let population decide about still living in a monarchy or in a new era: the Res Publica (everyone's thing = Republic).
The title refers to the Cicero's passage in De Legibus (III, 8), "On the Law", meaning "the salvation of people be the supreme Law", and stands for the commitment of Roman politicians in ruling in the interest of the community (populus) through the libertas (freedom); such principles funded the Senatus Populusque Romanus, SPQR (The Roman Senate and Community), which is recalled in the name of today's Rome Capital (the Senatus enjoyed the Authority, auctoritas, whereas the Magistrature - Consules et Praetores - practised the Civil Power, potestas, and the Military Power, imperium).
"La Festa della Repubblica" (The Republic Celebration) is usually held in the Capital city of Rome, but this time I celebrate its 70th anniversary with you all in Venice @Juice Berry, via Torino 162, Mestre, from 11pm. In addition, we could meet up the very next day as well, June 3rd, from 11pm for a further live show ;-)
