The machine that wasn’t meant to be created, and yet it was: the merit goes to a small team of engineers, who disobeyed their bosses’ orders, messed with international politics and crafted something unthinkable for the time. This episode of Italian Culture unveils what’s behind the first personal computer ever produced, the Olivetti's Programma 101. We’ll investigate how Piergiorgio Perotto and his group managed to make computers humane and paved the way for the modern information society.   

Today’s guests are Beniamino De Liguori, Gastone Garziera and Giovanni De Sandre.
