Colonnetti Airport

The park is located on the grounds of the former airport of Torino-Mirafiori, the first civil and military airport in Turin dated 1911. It was created on the occasion of the celebrations for the fiftieth anniversary of the Unification of Italy, on the emotional wave of an event organized the previous year by the nearby racecourse: the first flight over the national territory.
