History

A legendary factory

Officine Aeronautiche Caproni

Officine del Volo is based in the historical area which hosted former Caproni aircraft factory during World Wars; a real witness of cultural, social and economic innovations of 20th century in the city of Milan and Italy as well. The history of this industrial village is deeply connected to engineer Gianni Caproni, who designed his first aircraft on May 27th 1910. He established his activity in Vizzola Ticino in 1913, then moved it two years later to the area around the Taliedo district, close to Via Mecenate, where he gave life to his legendary factory: Officine Aeronautiche Caproni.
