• Short Summary

    King Vittorio-Emanuele III visits Libya.

  • Description

    Titles read: "KING OF ITALY IN LIBYA".

    Libya, Africa.

    Various shots of a huge ceremony to welcome King Vittorio-Emanuele (Victor-Emmanuel) III of Italy to Libya. We see the King's ship in the harbour. A fleet of aeroplanes flies past; Libyan and Italian (?) soldiers on horseback sit to attention as gunshots sound; the crowd of people cheer and applaud. Visuals missing between 01:49:19 and 01:49:27 - soundtrack continues - this seems to be the part where the King actually arrives!

    A long parade accompanies the King in an open carriage through the crowd-lined streets.
