    Background: A birthday celebration for the Carabiniere,the Italian Police Force, who marked their 106th foundation anniversary with a series of spectacular demonstrations and displays by various units in Rome, October 18.

    The National Highway Patrol stole the show with its motor-cycle gymnastics. Many of their antics resembled circus acts, particularly the burning hoop ride.

    On the tribute of honour was President Gronchi, who took the salute as each contingent rode or marched past.
