    Default Italian front village aerodrome recce photo - but where?

    hi, I wonder if anyone can recognise this village? The photo was taken by an aircraft of the 3rd Photographic Group, when part of the 12th AF. Taken on 2nd May 1944 this is probably somewhere south of Rome. The village shape is peculiar, probably a walled village and above it would appear to be an aerodrome that has been 'visited' by bombers. Anyone any thoughts as to where this might be?

    many thanks, daveClick image for larger version.
