I am going to Rome soon, and note that there are an F104, G91 and MB326 on display there.
Can anyone confirm the following;
1. If these are on the gate or inside the base.
2. What is the situation about taking pictures at Centocelle.
3. What is the situation about taking pictures of aircraft in Rome generally. I seem to recall somewhere that there is a general legal prohibition in Italy.
Centocelle is not operating any longer as military apt but is still a military zone as it hosts the IAF Air Command, so be careful in taking pictures.
Regarding the military aircraft you mentioned, they are located inside the AFB, so it would not be possible to take picture from outside.
As a last point, in general there are no problems in taking pictures near FCO
(we have a good spotters community in Rome) with some exceptions represented by the enforced controls made by the police near the airport when there's an El Al flight coming or departing or in case of special State flights such as those operated for the Pope or in case of foreigner presidents' visit.
