Books Info:

Air Mail free pdf A visual history of the pioneering age of flight in Italy, through a selection of rare postcards coming from one of the nation's largest collections specialising in aviation. The first flights in Italy were performed by Orville and Wilbur Wright in Centocelle, near Rome, in April 1909. From that moment, hundreds of brave men on their incredible machines started to sail the Italian skies during large air shows in Brescia, Milan, Verona, just to name a few. The air shows were great opportunities for postcard publishers, which produced many real photo and illustrated postcards, also used for the first experiments of air mail delivery. Aviation in Italy stopped being a sport sooner than in most other countries when Italian pilots were involved in the Italo-Turkish war in Libya, experimenting with techniques which were to be completed and brought to military perfection during World War I.
