I photographed this fly in the Sorgenti del Fiume Vera Nature Reserve (AQ), Italy on April 30th 2021. It looks like a Muscidae to me, but I'm not totally sure about that. Is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

The red frons and 3 backward-pointing bristles on the hind leg suggest Anthomyiidae to me.
Maybe a Pegomya sp.
