Pier Giorgio Perotto (1930–2002) has long been regarded as the 'father of the PC' in Italy. He joined Olivetti in the late 1950s as part of its newly established electronics division. This division's task was to develop a computer, and the result was the first computer designed and manufactured in Italy, the Elea 9003 in 1959.
