    Its the flooding of the Arno in 1966.

    As far as I can see there's one Valladolid sing there, which of course is in Spain. Looking at the pic, the truck, weapons, uniforms etc it must be just before or during WWII. Since Spain had no major events during WWII, I'm going for something related to the Civil War then.

    Yes, this is sometime during the Spanish Civil War but this image was taken at one particular point in said conflict, which one is it?

    Uh well I can't recall anything mayor happening in Valladolid, so maybe it's related to the rebellion of July '36 in Castilla and Aragona?

    Correct!

    In the picture, Falange troops were heading for the frontline, they would join in Valladolid the column of Colonel Serrador in his march to Madrid.

    Can the Dude be repped please, I am unable to do so at the moment due to a lack of interest and praise in anyone else other than the good man who got this event correct.

    Ah got it! I "had" to study the Civil War since when I graduated one of the two thesis I made was on the armies of the Spanish CW (the other one was on the armies of the Crusades )

    Looks like the village of Amatrice, destroyed by the 2016 earthquake in central Italy. I thought of the L'Aquila earthquake at first, but the images didn't match.

    Yes that's Amatrice, both the red building and the bell tower are iconic (the red building did collapse though after one of the many aftershocks). It's just 40 km from here.

    Minor event, but it did have quite a few implications for those involved:

    I was watching a food documentary on Netflix featuring a famous Italian chef and he talked about how desperate they were to sell off all their cheese before it spoiled following that earthquake.

    As for Abdul’s submission I can’t think of anything when seeing a picture of a bunch of celebrating colonial-era brits wearing wigs other than Pirates of the Caribbean

    They would have probably been appalled at the idea of getting mistaken for Brits. The event is not famous, but it should be much easier to guess correctly, once the family in the center has been identified.

    They must be French then

    I can't get much from the image, there seems to be plenty of soldiers and officers, but it's easy to see that they are celebrating.. but what? The people at the center top seem to be armed ..or maybe they are playing instruments

    a bit narrow for me still

    Well, there aren't many hints left to give. There were celebrations, but the most important element are the enthusiastic salutations. Identifying the recipient is the key.



    The event made some women walk, who then made a family move.

    The last hint I can give is that the family in question is that of Louis XVI. If you combine it with the sentence below, you could find the event that sparked one of the French Revolution's most impactful events.

    Alright, as three days have passed, I think it's time to give it up. It was the royal banquet organised by the guards of the Versailles Palace. The royalist participants cheered for Louis XVI and his family, in an event that sparked the Women's March to Versailles. The eventual result was that the royal family was forced to move to the Tuileries Palace inside Paris, under the more vigilant supervision of the revolutionaries.

    Feel free to post the next one.

    I don’t care. You can take it or I can too. Also my French knowledge is even if I knew it was Louis XVI i don’t know many of the smaller intricacies of the Revolution

    The picture refers to the battle that lead to that specific event.. the battle in itself wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but the following even was indeed.
