1956 Allocchio Bacchini 2001

From correspondence I've received from Italian radio collectors, the Allocchio Bacchini 2001 is now considered the prime candidate for Italy's first transistor radio — but according to Aldo Andreani, "this could be the real first Italian transistor radio, but so far no one knows if it ever entered the market".
