The celebrations started on Friday with a gala dinner at Palazzo Ducale, in front of the evocative "Paradise" of Tintoretto, the largest canvas in the world, and the magnificent "Triumph of Venice crowned by the victory" of Veronese. From the ogival windows of Palazzo Ducale, guests attended the Ferretti Yachts fleet parade.

At twilight, eyes were focused on the acrobatics of the Pattuglia Acrobatica Nazionale, Frecce Tricolori, in the anniversary of the "Battle of the Solstice", when exactly 100 years ago, in June 1918, the Italian Army heroically resisted the last Austro-Hungarian offensive and during which Major Francesco Baracca, “Asso degli Assi” of the Italian Aviation lost his life.
