The team will be floating their red, green and white colours over 21 cities in five days culminating in Rome on June 2 for Italian Republic Day.

Codogno was one of the towns passed over on the first day, famed for being one of the first places to enter lockdown as it was ravaged by the coronavirus.

One of the incentives for the performance this year is to bathe the country in a ‘tricolour hug’ in a show of solidarity after the country slowly eases out of its tough lockdown phase.
