Punta Ala and aviator Italo Balbo
The town has a recent past. Aviator Italo Balbo was struck by the beauty of this place while flying over it and decided to buy an ancient fortification giving it the name of Punta Ala. The place also became the basis for the training of his fleet. The first villas and the port were built in the ’60s.
