    Today, April 25, 2015, the 70th anniversary of the liberation of my country from the Nazi-fascist dictatorship by the Allied troops and the end of World War II in Italy. The photographs that I send you are part of a photographic project, subjects depicted are re-enactors and photos were made using machines and photographic techniques of the time. Here is the website where you can see the other pictures.
