(WAPA) - It is called "Immagini di volo" ("Images of flight") the photographic exhibition that showed, on Sunday, May 29, from 10:00 am, a glance to Andrea Pozza's shootings, an expert author of air photography. The exhibition’s opening happened together with the previous presentation of the homonymous photographic book published by the Air Museum "Gianni Caproni" in Trento. The initiative was at the center of an "Open day" totally dedicated to everyone who wants, for one day "To put the wings on": a Sunday with open doors to the public, with free entrance and events and initiatives for all age. The exhibition will last until August the 28th 2011.
With more than one hundred shootings chosen from the homonymous photographic book by Andrea Pozza, the exhibition is divided in four sections, namely "Leggeri più dell'aria" ("Lighter than air"), "Sulle ali della storia" ("On history’s wings"), "Aviazione sportiva" ("Sporting aviation") and "Air Show". The mounting is arranged over the whole museum space, in continuation with permanent exhibitions and surrounding contents.
The section on aerostatic fly is set on a large mural dedicated to balloons, which welcomes Museum visitors since its opening in 1992. Pozza shootings, many of which were done during balloons gatherings, offer a veritable gallery of balloons, from the more traditional with historical livery to the most curious and unconventional in shapes of figures, faces and animals, flying over spectacular mountain landscapes or in suggestive night contexts.
The area dedicated to historic aircraft that are still flying and replicas of machines that have marked the dawn of aviation history have been set up along the walls of the main exhibition hall, where the oldest aircraft and aviation memorabilia of the Museum collection are exposed. It is a journey through history that goes from the Wright brothers' biplane to the Second World War, passing through the parable of the aircraft manufacturer Gianni Caproni, from his first biplane to the lucky tourism models between the two wars.
Sporting aviation section, mounted in the hall of the airport "G. Caproni" terminal, nearby the runway, is mainly related to ultralight flight school activity based in Trento hub.
The entire gallery of photographs showed in the Museum's new exhibition hall ends with a composition of banners with some of the most exciting shootings made by Pozza during national and international air shows. In this last section of the museum, the public can view the spectacular evolution of the Air Force acrobatic teams from different Countries, together with some of the most prestigious civilian acrobatic team. The path ends with a space dedicated to Italian Air Force and its National acrobatic team (Pan).
The exhibition "Immagini di volo" is organized by the Air Museum "Gianni Caproni" in collaboration with Airport "G. Caproni SpA". (Avionews)
