  • A dip in the heroic story of Italian aviation including Francesco Baracca is one of the greatest ACEs! Very interesting Museum and well organized after a recent refurbishment. The outside where you have a Fiat g. 91Y has yet to be restored and made accessible. The Flight Simulator on the top floor is the joy of the youngest. Congratulations.
