We often see photos from the airshows… But we seldom see the photos of a reason for airshows existence – the people! Here is a humble try to represent a part of the feeling among the crowds – and Italian ones being very specific.
Most convinient transport across the vast expands of the public areas of the airfield. For a kid anyway 🙂
Italians second most worshiped thing behind the God, must be food. A reason powerful enough even to stop the flying display and take 1 hour of launch break.
It is good to wear some head cover under the burning hot sun – add a few national coloured ribbons and you have a winner!
Italians are also famous for the love of cell phones – this guy was not lonely in his doing
Never question the Italian fashion! If an Italian wears a shirt with raised collar, then it must be fashionable. Period!
When it’s hot, Italians are not shy to strip their clothes off – and showing off their bodies to the female crowd…
Attending the airshow in Italy, it’s a family get together and a daily trip… with everything that makes them comfortable…
