The monumental Palazzo dell'Aeronautica, was commissioned by the then Minister of the Royal Air Force Italo Balbo who, for the design, turned to an architect of only 28 years, Roberto Marino; the works were completed in two years, and the building is considered the first in Italy to be built entirely in reinforced concrete. The building covers an area of about 8000 square meters, and the main historic halls are expertly decorated with murals of a geographical, astronomical and historical nature, some of which represent places and situations concerning the two Atlantic Cruises, led by Balbo himself in 1930 and 1933, respectively in Brazil and the United States.
