Italian team welcomed at home by thousands of fans
The Italian team left Germany on Monday and was given a friendly water salute by the workers at the airport.
Notice the image of the players that is on the side of the airplane.
The team then arrived in Rome and was greeted by the Italian Air Force with the trecolore in smoke.
They visited with Prime Minister Prodi and others before heading to the Circus Massimo.
And then they went to the party. And what at party it must have been!
