Italian Air Force gives 'Tricolor Hug'

People taking a gondola ride and a gondolier wave as the Italian Air Force acrobatic unit Frecce Tricolori (Tricolored Arrows) perform on Friday over Venice as part of the Aeronautic military initiative "Abbraccio Tricolore" (Tricolor Hug), as the country eases its lockdown aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19. Italy has eased lockdown measures in a bid to lift its economy even as the death toll from the virus reached more than 33,000 on Friday.
