A world-class collection of airplanes and historical artefacts.
Opened in 1992, Gianni Caproni Aeronautics Museum gathers and displays a world-class collection of airplanes and historical artefacts collected by the Caproni family, entrepreneurs and airplane manufacturers.
The primary core of the collection is developed in 1929, when the airplanes built in the decade between 1910 and 1920 by Engineer Caproni are grouped together.
Since then, the collection has included engines, airships' sections, propellers, a vast thematic library, as well as technical and photographic archives. The museum in Trento currently showcases 56 airplanes, 9 of which are unique of their kind.
In addition to the hundreds of historical memorabilia displayed, the museum features a reconstruction of the famous aeronautical pioneer's designing-room and a section of the propeller workshop in the Caproni plant, which operated in the 20s. The museum offers 4 multimedia information points in 3 foreign languages disseminated throughout the location.
