I guess this picture popped up over here in past, but in much worse quality. In https://www.facebook.com/comitato.lineagotica/ it was described as located in front of restaurant Cavalluccio Marino near Cecina (in Vada) , on the beach.

Two photo's from Ebay with a Panther turret , in the back you see a airplane , looks to me a B-25 Mitchell .
Looking at the two, a airfield and the panther turret it could be Rimini, B-25 from the Twelfth Air Force
were stationed in 1945 there .

Hello Jos,
Also my first thought was Rimini...

Another thing - we have a neighbouring thread viewtopic.php?f=70&t=255695&p=2395079#p2395079
It looks like thanks to Andrzej Ditrich's picture a next location - in Stettin - is established.

Further clarification: thanks to people from https://www.facebook.com/FestungStettin, and pictures from https://fotopolska.eu/Szczecin/b105168, ... BCcke.html a new location is proposed, it seems it's a correct one. A mistake occured, as two "branches" of the river seemed to have this same name, and both bridges were constructed with these same metal elements. Also, now a larger source photo is available.

Another picture form facebook page mentioned above. As it's dated 25 03 1945, it seems that Pantherturm is visible there, but already blown up (on 20 03 1945, as it's suggested in this same source).
