Boscomantico Airport: history
It was born as one of the bases of the Aviation section of the Specialist Battalion of the Royal Army. In January 1911 the Ausonia airship, the largest airship in the history of the Italian Air Force, was raised from here.
Boscomantico airport is located on a large area in the north of Verona, and was equipped in 1916, when the III Airplane Group was established, which participated in the First World War along with other squadrons.
In 1927 it was the seat of the 15th Airplane Group and, from 1930, of an Air Tourism Section. On 15 October 1939 the airport changed its name from Boscomantico to “Verona Airport”. Rebuilt after the bombing of the Second World War, it was home to American units for years.
