Aeronautica Militare - Italian Air Force

The Aeronautica Militare's presence at the Ferrara Balloons Festival is a happy tradition, perhaps the most rooted one.

Since the first year of the event, the stands of the ItAF are among the most frequented by the public with its simulators, exhibitions, models and the constant presence of the helpful staff.

The proximity to the city of the COA (Operations Command) of Poggio Renatico has obviously increased this collaboration and over the years has gone from the mere representative presence to an active and fundamental area of the Festival full of initiatives and contributions such as the flight simulators, the exhibition of  drone's mock - ups , helicopters, jet fighters, rescue, patrol and refuel's vehicles or the latest tecnologies and equipment as the VERAGON, that produces drinkable water from the humidity.




Arma dei Carabinieri - Carabinieri Corp 


The Carabinieri Corps in its dual role as a Police and Armed Force is ever present in the lives of the citizens it protects, from the largest city in Italy to the remotest village. 

At the Festival the Force 's area inroduces the public to two of its most significant expressions:

  • the Patrol, which most typically represents the "Institute Service", with the presence of service vehicoles, attires and equipments 
  • the specialized component with some dispay of the scientific investigations, with all the technical equipment that allows to scrutinize the crime scenes.

Not to miss also the exhibition of the Dog Squad, an highly  specialised  team from the Centro Carabinieri Cinofili in Florence, which shows the public the simulation of some of the interventions that the Force perform in case of strike and robbery.
