I photographed this fly near Monte Corvo (AQ), Italy, 2300m a.s.l. on July 14th 2022. I think it is a Tachinidae, but I'm not completely sure about that. Is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
ESant attached the following image:

Thank you Theo! I only have one doubt: shouldn't Nyctia have darkened wings? Or are there any exceptions?
