Our Foundation was created on 22 November 2005. It abides to the principles and juridical statutes set out for the "Participatory Foundation" (Fondazione di Partecipazione), a sub-branch of the broader category of foundations regulated by the Italian civil code. The Foundation's registered office is in Varese (address: 1 Piazza Libertà), while the head office is at Somma Lombardo in Via per Tornavento 15.

The Foundation has identified three objectives towards the creation of a museum complex dedicated to aeronautics and its history:

  • the conservation, promotion and valorisation of objects of artistic and historical interest, particularly aircrafts, equipment, documentation and other material pertaining to aeronautics;
  • the promotion of a local economic development model highlighting the history, culture and industrial tradition of the province of Varese;
  • the promotion and creation and cultural and conservation activities; the organization of permanent and temporary exhibitions; the establishment of archives and libraries; and the setting up of laboratories for restoration works dedicated, among other things, to promoting the region's rich tradition of aeronautics.
