Soon available at Milistoria
(Milistoria is a spin-off from Tuttostoria, a prominent Italian organization of militaria books selling. They separated their business into a branch related to Italian language books and another one for international publications)

I have stumbled upon the announcement of this book, next to be published in early 2014. It would be one of the few references available in English about WWII Italian Air Force.

Copying and pasting from Milistoria site: "This book is a highly detailed look at World War II era Italian flight gear. Much of the information appears here for the first time in English. Covering flight suits, flight helmets, goggles, parachutes, life vests, oxygen masks, boots, gloves, and more, in over 600 images, offering full coverage of this long overlooked topic. Color photography shows full views of actual period clothing and equipment, as well as close-up details of manufacturers' marks and labels, zippers, buttons and snaps, and insignia. War era images, including rare period color, show Italian aircrews wearing a variety of Italian and German flight gear."

It may be of some interest for the readership.
