Summarize this article for a 10 years old
The Guardia di Finanza (G. di F. or GdF) (Italian pronunciation: [ˈɡwardja di fiˈnantsa]) (English: literal: Guard of Finance, paraphrased: Financial Police or Financial Guard) is an Italian law enforcement agency under the authority of the Minister of Economy and Finance. It is a militarized police force, forming a part of the Ministry of Economy and Finance, not the Ministry of Defence. Guardia di Finanza is essentially responsible for dealing with financial crime and smuggling; it has also evolved into Italy's primary agency for suppressing the illegal drug trade. It maintains over 600 boats and ships and more than 100 aircraft to serve in its mission of patrolling Italy's territorial waters. It also has the role of border police and customs duties at Italian airports.
