During the World War II Italian Campaign it was seized by the British Eighth Army in late September 1943 and turned into an Allied military airfield. Until the end of the war in May 1945, it was used by the Royal Air Force and the United States Army Air Forces Twelfth and Fifteenth Air Forces both as an operational airfield as well as a command and control base. In addition the airfield was used by the Italian Co-Belligerent Air Force , or Air Force of the South . After the war it was turned over to the postwar Air Force of the Italian Republic .
