Cortona Liberazione

6 Jul

Today in Cortona, the locals celebrated 70 years since the liberation of their city in 1944.

With proud veterans

and original military vehicles and equipment,

Italians and members of the Great Generation Airborne Group (dressed as British and American soldiers), stood at attention

as a wreath was laid.

Songs were sung and people joined in the parade


vowing never to forget those who served and liberated their ancient and lovely town.
