An Amazing Story

From 1915 to 1918, between the river Piave and the slopes of the hills of ‘Montello’, the skies were covered by the wonders of aeronautics, while on the ground the smell of gunpowder and the perfumes of the forest, farms and the flowers mixed together. It was WW1 and Italy was under siege. Many valiant men left their wives, children and their mothers to defend their country. Francesco Baracca, one of the most famous fighter pilots in Italian history, was one of these men.

He was born in 1888, and after attending the military academy in the cavalry department, he travelled to the pilot academy at Bethany in France to obtain his flight license, and it wasn’t long before Francesco was soon recognized for his natural aero-acrobatic skills. With the First World War breaking in Italy, Baracca returned home and became a protagonist in the first successes of Italian war aviation. He led the so-called “squadron of the axes” composed of the best aviators of the Royal Army. His machine was a ‘Spad S.VII’, with the black Prancing Horse painted on the white background of the fuselage side. This prancing horse originated from his family’s noble coat of arms.

A total of 34 victorious air battles where his, until that ill-fated day of 19 June 1918 when his plane was shot down near Nervesa della Battaglia by enemy forces.

His mother, the Countess Baracca, was desperate to see the youthful spirit and bravery of her son live on. It was for this reason that she gifted Francesco Baracca’ s symbol of the prancing black horse to a young Enzo Ferrari at his first automobile race. Enzo Ferrari wrote: “When I won the first circuit of ‘The Savio’ in Ravenna in 1923, I met Contessa Paolina. It was she who told me one day: ‘Ferrari, put on your automobiles the prancing horse of my son. It will bring you luck.’ When Francesco Baracca’ s plane was shot down in 1918 onto the hills of Nervesa della Battaglia, it was on the same fields that are now home to the Cester Camillo family, where Birra Baracca is handcrafted today.

This lager, Birra Baracca, is an homage to the spirit of Italian ingenuity, bravery and passion.
