On September 8, 1943, during World War II, the Armistice with Italy, signed on September 3, between Italy and the Allied armed forces, who were then occupying the southern half of the country, was publicly declared entailing the capitulation of Italy. It is also referred to in Italy as the Armistizio di Cassibile (from the place in which it was signed) or the Armistizio dell'8 Settembre (more simply 8 Settembre).
Today, a huge fire took place at the German War Cemetery in Pomezia (Rome): it surely is a coincidence
