How old were you when the Second World War begun? I had gone to elementary school here Then I went to Rome, because here... after elementary, there weren't more schools So my father, said, Camillo, I'm Camillo, should continue his studies My dad was a businessman so I wanted to become one too. But he said no no So I studied engineering So I did 5 years of engineering in Rome He wanted me to go forward with my studies But I felt bad leaving my father here alone But for high school I decided on the institute ....... you could still go there today. But they want to know... how old you were when the war started? I was 19 As I said, I was busy with studies and projects The police came with my draft card.... "August 13th 1940 I needed to go to the taglieto (?) airport in Milan So you had to serve? Forgive me for saying so much, because I enjoy speaking I was selected to be a Marconista (radio operator) Because, nowadays there is all this modern technology But in this period, there weren't all these electronic inventions of today I had to participate in the war for the continuation of all flights I flew all the time during the war Being a radio operator... Do you know what a Marconist is? Do you know Marconi? The Italian who invented the radio I had an American key On board we had the headphones to receive And we had the key to transmit The key from the keyboard of a computer Because we were the S-79 I had a little space behind the pilot There was a little radio-electrographic table with radio cards Marconista meant radio operator and meteorologist. So I studied weather as well So you had to calculate the weather for the pilots? He had to send the weather reports There was a radiophone and we spoke in flight But if the airplane was further than (100 meters) ?we couldn't understand anything We used morse code Do you know morse code?
