With the notable exception of their football team, little inspires patriotism amongst the Italian populace.  The North/South divide would put the UK to shame, and you are more likely to see the rainbow flag than the Italian tricolour.

Venice proudly flies the city’s standard, Siena’s terracotta is awash with the colours of the contrade, Sicily officially adopted the Trinacria at the turn of the century, but the red, white and green generates less excitement.

Nevertheless some banners are ubiquitous.
