"The future of aviation is in drones, the pioneers of today are like the Wright brothers a century ago," event organizer Luciano Castro said.

The three-day Rome Drone 2015 event showcases 60 exhibitors and 200 drones, including Red Cross relief drones, police and military drones, and 50 drones made by children, who will fly together as a group.
