nov 4th was the 150th anniversary of armed forces day in Italy. There were events planned for 3 days which culminated last evening just about dusk in the piazza del popolo. all the branches of the armed forces were gathered there for a ceremony and celebration. Starting off the celebration was the fly over (twice) of the 9 Italian air force planes in the famous vee shape with the trailing red, white and green Italian colors. Was quite a show since the planes were quite low and loud. Lots of pleased on lookers on a Sunday afternoon.
