Why did 3 military helicopters pass over the center of Rome today, May 2nd? Several citizens who were in the central area of Rome (also the Prati district) around 11.40 saw 3 military helicopters pass over their heads. The three vehicles then “stopped” above via Cola di Rienzo, almost in Piazza del Popolo. The reason? No war or danger to citizens. The helicopters were present “only” to celebrate the 162 years of the Italian Army.
