The Adamoli-Cattani fighter was a prototype fighter aircraft designed as a private venture by two Italian aircraft builders in 1918.
The Adamoli-Cattani was intended to be the smallest practical biplane around the most powerful engine available to them, a 149 kW (200 hp) le Rhône 9M. The result was a reasonably conventional design, other than that the wings featured hinged leading edges in place of conventional ailerons. The Farina Coach Building factory in Turin began construction of the prototype; the Officine Moncenisio in Condove completed it.
Upon completion, ground testing revealed that the engine as installed could only deliver some 80% of its rated power, thus leaving the aircraft significantly underpowered. Limited tests continued until the end of World War I, when the Armistice made further development superfluous.
