WHO I AM Stampa

Mauro Antonellini


I was born on 01/15/1953 in Lugo di Romagna, native town of Fist World War aviator Francesco Baracca ,  and, since when I was young, I have a passion for aviation. I apply myself to historical research, especially about naval aviation during Fist World War. I am member of  Scentific Committee of "Museo Baracca" in Lugo and co-writer of the book "Sulla scia di Baracca: gli aviatori del lughese." (In the wake of Baracca: Aviators in Lugo).

On year 2008 I published the book "Salvat ubi lucet: la base idrovolanti di Porto Corsini e i suoi uomini 1915-1918." (Salvat Ubi Lucet: The seaplane base of Porto Corsini and the men who served there - 1915 - 1918)

On this Web site I gather the fruits of my research activity so aniyone interested can freely use them simply by quoting me as source.



I chosed as my logo the rampant horse that Francesco Baracca painted on his planes along the motto "Ad Maiora" carved on his monument in Lugo di Romagna.
