A registry I accessed indicates the aircraft was last active in 1976, and no current information is available. The photo was taken outside on a turf apron, not inside a museum. Other than the gyro-horizon, and perhaps the compass, I think the panel is original.

Further research indicates that the aircraft is probably no longer airworthy.

Just a stab in the dark a Nardi FN-315 perhaps?

It is European, it is not a jet, and it is similar to the Nardi.

The Nardi was an Italian two-seater (tandem) tail dragging monoplane produced in 1938, with inline engine a retractable U/C. Looking at the photograph the canopy appears to be hinged. Is this aircraft of the same vintage? However I think the incivil beast may well be correct.

Not a LAZ-7M. Canopy was indeed hinged to one side. It is a retractable tail-dragger. Approximately 220 were produced in the post-WW.II era.
A few were sold to foreign air forces, but most were operated in its country of origin.

Not the UTVA-213, nor the FIAT G.55B. Mel is very close.

Staying with Fiat How about the Fiat G.46-4B. This plane is a version of a Fiat G.46 transitional trainer built after WW II in Italy as a single and two seat basic trainer. The first model was a G.46-1B flown in the summer of 1947. The largest production run was the G.46-1B (205 hp Alfa Romeo 115bis engine) two seater trainer built for the Italian AF.

A FIAT G.46 it is, Mel! Very few of this well handling aircraft remain airworthy. The cockpit photo is of a FIAT G.46-3A, built between 1950-51, with a 6-cylinder Alfa Romeo engine. You have control.

This aircraft first flew early 1940s and was produced in reasonable numbers.
