An Alitalia jet on a flight from Madrid has made an emergency landing at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport after one of its landing gears failed to open.
The airport's operations room said the Airbus 320 landed on the tarmac leaning on a wing and its tail after the right-side landing gear did not work.
It said all 151 passengers and the crew of five left the plane safely through emergency slides after the pilot reported the problem. No one was injured.
The cause of the malfunction is being investigated.
