Aviation Book Series


Dimensione Cielo

The highly regarded Italian language series 'Dimensione Cielo' initially focussed on Italian aircraft of World War 2. Each title grouped a number of aircraft types according to their main role: fighters, bombers etc. The contents was in a similar style to the British 'Profile' series with data tables, b+w photographs and colour artwork. The text is regarded as being very authoritative and reliable.

Numbers 1 to 11 were subtitled 'Aerei Italiani nella 2 Guerra Mondiale' (Italian Aircraft of World War 2), while numbers 12 to 16 were subtitled 'Aerei Italiani Nel Dopoguerra' (Italian Postwar Aircraft) but publication was cut short before this sequel really got going. Numbers 21 to 24 appeared in 2 or 3 parts (except number 21) and were subtitled 'Aerei Stranieri Nella 2 Guerra Mondiale' (Foreign Aircraft of World War 2). Written by William Green, they appear to be based on his 'War Planes of the Second World War' series, but again the series terminated before completion.

The 'Immagini' series appeared as a pictorial supplement to the main series, presenting a large number of b+w photographs of the subjects featured in the equivalent volume number.
