50 Years in the Castle

The famed Battaglione San Marco— Italy’s current Marine force that traces their unofficial lineage back to the 16th century Fanti da Mar of the old Republic of Venice– recently celebrated the unit’s 50th anniversary of moving into the 13th Century Swabian castle, the Castello Svevo, in the Adriatic coastal city of Brindisi.

And they did it in typical understated San Marco fashion.

Happy Brindisi Day, gentlemen.
