The book chronicles the daily happenings on the mountain slopes of Sisemol
and Catz during the First International Gliding Competition, organized
by the National Air League and sponsored by the newspaper "La Gazzetta
dello Sport" .
A true live chronicle, where have emerged curious anecdotes, such as
the gliders sent via railway by the German pilots and held hostage by
the customs in Verona and also the story of the mule "Matricola",
tethered near the Condor that after consuming his ration of hay, began
gnawing the wing-tip of the glider. This and many other stories have emerged,
making the development of the first international gliding competition
in Asiago most enjoyable and interesting reading.
The book is published by EQIP in a precious volume of 144 pages in color, 220x300mm, hard cover and is available at a price of € 35.00 plus postage, from the publisher himself.
