Just look at this magnificent creature! Can anyone help me give it a name?

About 7-10 mm, photographed near Rome, Italy, yesterday.

Thanks in advance, Sarah

I notice my green eyes has been moved to the Asilidae forum, I suppose that means it is an Asilidae? I had the idea it might be, but was not sure enough to post it directly here. Here's another photo i found in my archive last night which seems to show the same Diptera, taken last year with a compact camera, so the quality is not good, but it shows it in typical Asilidae pose. Thanks in advance for any ideas, Sarah
