in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Only few months after the end of the Exposition Internationale d'Électricité held in Paris in 1881, where Thomas Edison displayes his system of electric lighting, a syndicate was created in Milan with a view to setting up an Italian Edison company. What the promoters envisioned was not only the sale of isolated installations and electrical equipment but also the creation of a comercial power station, similar to the plant that Edison was building in New York. By the end of 1883 the power station, similar to the plant that Edison was building in New York. By the end of 1883 the power station set up in the centre of Milan, was in operation, and in 1884 the Società Generale Italiana di Elettricità Sistema Edison was incorporated. The aim of this chapter is to examine the debate on te opportunity of adopting electric lighting wich took place in the early 1880's, the negotiations with the Edison headquarters in New York and Paris, the actors involved and their diverse agendas. The chapter offers also a reassessment of the role played by Giuseppe Colombo, profesor of mechanical engineering of the local Istituto Tecnico Superiore, in launching the company and steering its course in the first decisive years. It was under his direction that by 1886 the Società Edison turned to alternating current and became a pioneer in the new long distance high tension technology
