This dynamo comes from the first power plant in Europe, opened in 1883 in Milan for the production of continuous electrical current to illuminate the city. The plant was built thanks to engineer Giuseppe Colombo, future rector of the Milan Polytechnic, following the model of the one built by Edison in New York in 1882. Although the plant was soon outdated from the technological point of view, it turned Milan into a crucial centre for the development of the Italian electrical industry.
