To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Rome an exhibition has opened at the Vittoriano at the Piazza Venezia in Rome of previously unpublished photographs and films taken from American and British military archives. The photographs and films, which are divided into five chronological groups, document the final months of the battle to liberate Rome and the surrounding countryside. They start from the bombing of the Roman district of S.Lorenzo on 19 July 1943 and continue with the Anzio landings and the fighting in towns such as Velletri, Valmontone and Albano on the road to Rome. The exhibition ends with scenes of the Romans welcoming the allied forces on their arrival in the capital and is accompanied by evocative music from the time. Everyday from 09.30 - 18.30 until 5 September. Entrance free.
