Historical re-enactment of the Austrian

Re-enactment of the Austrian visitation to Mogliano (MC), Le Marche, 1744; the town have an annual festival to commemorate the event. We tend to forget that the concept of a united Italy is relatively recent; historically, the country has been affected by outside invaders such as the French, Austrians and from internal divisions between the Papal States, the Venetians etc. The Austrian party included Maria Theresa of Austria, queen of Bohemia and Hungaary.
