Thirteen Photos of Italians in Uniform
Here at Profoundly Shallow, I often find myself hoping to share some aspect of my life that folks elsewhere in the world might not be familiar with. As an American in Italy, certain things just kinda-sorta jump out at me that might not be noticeable to the average Italian.
Like uniforms, for example.
I still get quite a kick out the police uniforms here in Italy. I mean, they're just so darned... Snazzy!
Italian Highway Police
(I love the second picture because of the officer in the middle taking a photo of the Lamborghini. LOL!)
Italian Municipal Police
Don't you agree?
And then, there are the specialists.
Italian Forestry Police. (No, I don't know why they're in town...)
And then, of course, there's the military...
Italian Folgori (Paratroopers)
Italian Carabinieri (Military Police)
And can you believe there are still those who wear uniforms as elaborate as these?
Italian Corazzieri - the honor guard of the President of the Italian Republic
Italian Alpini - Elite Mountain Warfare Solidiers
Cadets from the Miliary Academy in Modena, Italy.
Never mind the feathers. He's still pretty bad-ass. ;)
My personal favorites - the Bersaglieri, a high mobility infantry unit. Why are they my favorites? Because they can do this!
Yes, I know - I lost track of how many pics I posted. To be fair, some were repeats (and the video, too, I believe). Still, I hope you enjoyed these, at least a little.
And, no, I didn't forget.
