This is the shape of things that went. The C.E.P. was the first electronic calculator built by an university in Italy. It was constructed for research purposes and financed with money intended to pay for a nuclear reactor, in 1957.

We’re working on a project on the C.E.P. in the framework of Networking 2009, curated by Elisa Del Prete. The theme of this instalment of Networking is ‘memory’.

The C.E.P. sits today in a former slaughterhouse in Pisa, now the Museo degli Strumenti per il Calcolo, its components no longer linked by power, data and air conditioning links.
