Gianni Caproni Museum of Aeronautics

An internationally unique collection of aeroplanes and historical relics

The plane on which Gabriele D'Annunzio flew over Vienna on 9 August 1918 is just one of the wonders collected by the Caproni family, together with futurist masterpieces and technical material.

The Museo dell'Aeronautica Gianni Caproni offers a collection, unique in the world, of airplanes, historical relics and works of art collected by the Caproni family, entrepreneurs and pioneers of aviation...

... like the Ansaldo SVA 5, which participated in the demonstration flight of Gabriele D'Annunzio over Vienna on 9 August 1918, with its camouflage livery intact, the Ansaldo A1, again from 1918, the Caproni Ca 6 from 1911...

Also reconstructed were the designing studio and a corner of the propellers workshop at the Caproni plant as it used be in the Twenties.

Among the works of art dedicated to flying, quite unmissable is the collection of Futurist Aeropainting with works by Luigi Bonazza, Fortunato Depero, Giacomo Balla, Mario Sironi, Tato, Alfredo Ambrosi.

In 1927, engineer Caproni started to put together his planes built from 1910 to 1920. Engines, parts of airships, propellers were added later, as well as a large theme library and a technical and photographic archive.
The Museum was inaugurated in 1992.
