Darn! I was in the area last week, well, the East side of Novara anyway. I have a vague recollection that I have been in touch with him a few years ago. Will check when I get home tonight

I came across this:


which lead me on to


Alberto Rubinelli has a warehouse full of machines (8134 that have been 
catalogued and maybe 4000 more that are yet to be catalogued). The 
article mentions a VAX-11/780 and and an "IBM 390", but no pictures of 
either. There's a Laptop Grid Computer 1520 but it's not quite clear 
whether it is one that flew on the shuttle or just the same type as one 
that did.

His aim is to have them all running and to open a museum.
