Public holidays in Italy are determined primarily by two Acts of parliament as well as by collective and individual employment agreements. Act 260/1949 and Act 50/1954 created four national public holidays as well as 11 other holidays.
On these days, workers are entitled to a day off with full pay. If they need to work for any reason, they are entitled to pay at a rate of 2.5 their normal level.
Each town in Italy will generally also have a local public holiday in commemoration of their patron Saint – Italy being a country where 90 per cent of the population identify themselves as Roman Catholic. This religiosity is also the reason for the high number of Christian festivals in the lists below.
