I have this photo that is dated 1944, Italy. I have no other information about it. At this time, Italy would have been divided into two parts, with northern Italy being occupied by the Germans and Mussolini -- freed by the Gran Sasso raid -- installed as head of the Italian Socialist Republic. Of course, I wonder where this photo was taken, and why the fanfare, as it was attended by Italian and German officials. There's even someone filming the event. Speculation welcome!
Here is the photo and some close-ups taken from it.

Hi, those picture are not from Italy. You can see a bell tower "onion style", tipically central european. Also officers wear very large hats, absolutely not italians. I can make a guess: Romania ? Bulgaria ?
