From http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/Biographical/Diary/edited/1194/6.html :
Nov. 1 (or 4, which seems to be a secular AllSaints): November 4, 1918 was the date on which victorious Italy ceased fighting the First World War. It is thus the Italian equivalent of the Armistice Day celebrated in America and most of Europe on November 11th, a date on which the dead of all wars are honored.
