The Museum of Fantastic Flight is a museum dedicated to the history of aviation.
Description[edit | edit source]
Located in Porto Paradiso, Italy, the Museum was founded in the 1800s by Cellino and Giuliana Falco. The museum is dedicated to "the eternal dream of mankind", and features early flying machines, sketches by the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, and paintings of some of the world's great aviators.
The first director of the Museum was Cellino Falco. After his death in 1850, it was inherited by his daughter, aviator and inventor Camellia Falco, who ran the Museum until her death in 1875. Following this, the Society of Explorers and Adventurers took control of the Museum, so as to preserve it in memory of Camellia.
In 1901, in honor of the 100th anniversary of Camellia's birth, the Museum hosted a celebration of her life, at which one of Camellia's original Dream Flyers was displayed. At this event, Camellia, now a spirit, who still resided in the Museum, made herself known to guests as she led them on journeys of the imagination using the Dream Flyer.
