I photographed this fly near Monte Ocre (AQ), Italy, 1500m a.s.l. on October 4th 2021. I think it is a Tachinidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,

Hi Emanuele, it's a Nowickia, and if my eyes don't deceive me, it could be a male N. ferox.
Greetings, Eric
