Special publication devoted to the air show at Turin on 3 July 1932, one of many celebrations of the tenth anniversary of the Fascist assumption of power. A full-page photograph shows Mussolini as a pilot, another side of the all-competent leader. A large table lists all Italian transatlantic flights from 1919 to 1930. A year after this air show, Italo Balbo would lead his squadron of sea planes to Chicago, the first successful transatlantic crossing of its kind.
