Everybody loves a parade, and everyone loves uniforms!

No American Navy it seems.

I agree with Dina - love the fanfare. Your pix are more fun than the official one, but it's nice in a weird way to see the people all in a square in front of the ship.

No sign of the Swedish navy? Maybe they couldn't find their way to Livorno!

Jacob said...

What great fun. Did the US Navy participate? That last shot reminds me of my boot camp photo - a long, long time ago!

We have "Fleet Week" here this week. Mostly military ships but no parade.

How neat. Seattle and Everett being Navy towns we have fleet stuff going one--parades and stuff but your pics are wonderful. MB

Men in Navy uniforms usually have me swoon, whether or not they play music. I spot a French flag.

Why are there so many flags from different countries? I spot Japan's flag on the right ;)

Kaori said...

I can imagine how happy I would be to see this if I was there on vacation. I would take hundreds of pictures but few would be as nice as yours.

The City Hall is a great background for this ceremony. Wonderful coverage of this event!

Ciel speaks for all of us. :)
