Warhammer 40K Inspired Trump Float Seen In Italian Parade

A recent parade in a town in Italy saw some impressive floats made by local citizens. The one that has caught the attention of people worldwide has been one of US President Donald Trump, seen in armor very reminiscent of a Warhammer 40K character.

The Viareggio Carnival has been going on for 147 years as of 2019, where giant, allegorical papier-maché floats are paraded around town, handmade in the traditional style of large sail boats, a major part of the history and traditions of the town.

While there were many other very interesting floats, the most intriguing one has to be the one of Trump.

You can check out some video footage of the float early in the video below:

Made by Fabrizio Galli, the float was titled “The Master-Drone,” and used Warhammer 40K elements of The God Emperor and Space Marine armor to make this towering behemoth. Donald is also holding a power sword with the words “Dazi Vostri” written on it, which translates to “your duties.”

Here are the artists comments on the piece from the official Carnival website:

The supreme myth of having power over the whole universe. The first. God Emperor Trump. The parallelism with the dominant character of Warhammer 40K has never been more fitting, except that this is not a futuristic three-dimensional tabletop wargame but pure reality.

Donald wants to go back to the moon, travel to Mars and create the first space army. Ultras Marines? Mega Marines? The time of intellectuals, philosophers and of old and worn culture is over. We have entered the era of fantasy, videogames and virtual life. The dominant male par-excellence has arrived, democratically, and is now here, among us. The Master-Drone flies over the Viareggio boardwalk as we prepare to pay the price.

The character is based on The Emperor of Mankind, described by the Warhammer 40K wiki as “is the immortal Perpetual who serves as the ruling monarch of the Imperium of Man,… the greatest embodiment of universal Order in the galaxy today.” Underneath his armor is a rotting corpse, kept alive by machines.

The parade, dedicated to women this year, also featured floats celebrating female artists like Frida Kahlo, religious figures, environmental issues, and politicians.
