There are several recordings of this concert, one being most notably an incomplete soundboard recording that appeared for the first time shortly after the show on the vinyl bootleg Live in Italy. This recording is widely available, having being pressed many times on subsequent vinyl or CD bootlegs usually with the title Live in Milano or Live in Italy.
There are also other three known audience recordings, of excellent quality, for two of which we have source informations:
- Imperial shotgun mics > Marantz deck
- AKG 333 bulb mics > WM-D6c
The show was also professionally filmed, there are clearly visible videocameras (35mm) in pictures of the show. Possibly it was for some documentary or some release; fact is the video of the show never appeared, even if one song (Message In A Bottle) was broadcast on an Italian TV news report at the time.
The show was also partially audience filmed with a Super 8mm camera and three songs were broadcast on a private local TV station.
There were about 10.000 people in the audience. (Actually it was reported at the time there were 12.000 people --Pigsinspace 18:12, 14 November 2008 (PST))
In the morning Miles Copeland organised a photo shoot with YAMAHA bikes outside the band's hotel - the Principe Di Savoia.
First Sting was photographed alone on his YAMAHA. Then Stewart returned from a test drive, joining his band members for group photos with their bikes. The Police were then photographed without the YAMAHA bikes before Stewart again took his bike out on the road (wearing a scarf).
