Growing Peace, an exhibition on 100 years of Italian Air Force, will open at UN Headquarters

NEW YORK, APRIL 14 – “Growing Peace”, an exhibition to celebrate the contribution of the Italian Air Force to UN peacekeeping, will be held from April 17 to 28 at the United Nations headquarters in New York. The event is one of the many organized by Aeronautica Militare Italiana (AMI, the Italian air force) to celebrate its first 100 years across Italy and beyond.

The original Regia Aeronautica Militare was founded on March 28, 1923 by King Vittorio Emanuele III. The air force adopted its current name in 1946 after Italians voted to abolish the monarchy and become a republic in a referendum following World War two. Since its formation, the air force has held a prominent role in modern Italian military history and is best known for its acrobatic display team, the Frecce Tricolori.

The plan of the celebrations program was laid out in December last year by the Italian Air Force Chief of Staff, Air Force, General Luca Goretti, who will come to NY for the opening of the UN exhibition along with the Head of UN Peacekeeping, Undersecretary General Jean Pierre Lacroix: “It is a great opportunity to tell our story, make known our ideals and our precious skills at the service of the community and the institutions”, General Goretti said at the time.
