Another Italian web site, Nextme.it, has conducted an interview with Leonardo Corp.’s licensee for Italy, Aldo Proia. Of course the interview is in Italian, and so a clear translation of the interview is not readily available for English speakers — but with the help of Google and Bing, I have gleaned a few points made by Prioa.
He made contact with Leonardo corporation following changes in the law in Italy which negatively affected the large scale photovoltaic installation business he was previously involved in.
He became impressed with E-Cat technology after visiting Rossi’s workshop and witnessing experiments done with the high temperature (600C) units. He was particularly impressed after seeing an E-Cat run for at least 12 hours without external electrical input.
Proia says he is not afraid to go up against the established industrial powers because in the world of the Internet, he believes it is impossible to stop a revolution. He states that large multinational companies (not naming any) are investigating LENR, and it seems that even in Italy the opposition towards LENR seems to be decreasing.
He sees no real competitors to Leonardo corporation in Italy in the medium term future, and considers competition is years away in other countries.
Proia states that the low temperature plants are already available, and high temperature E-Cat plants can already be ordered, with materials becoming available about them this fall.
Any help from our Italian speakers would, as always, be gratefully received!
