Frecce Tricolori fly over Rome on 4 November.
Italian president Sergio Mattarella will attend the annual ceremony at Rome’s Altare della Patria to mark national unity and armed forces on Monday 4 November.
More than 3,000 troops are expected to participate in a military display which will be inspected by President Mattarella and Italy's defence minister Lorenzo Guerini.
At 08.30 the president will lay a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Piazza Venezia in honour of Italy’s war dead and casualties of international peacekeeping missions. A highlight of the annual event is the flypast by the Italian air force’s Frecce Tricolori aerial acrobatic team, emitting plumes of the three colours from the Italian flag.
The date of the annual military ceremony, 4 November, coincides with the anniversary of the armistice of Villa Giusti in 1918, which ended world war one on the Italian front.
Numerous traffic detours
are expected in the city centre between 07.00 and 10.00.
