Faltusa, for its particular front panel, is one the most fascinating of all the Radiomarelli models.
The dial, in circular shape, is printed on silk and is located behind a second silk which is also the speaker screen. The sound comes out through the two tissues, which are supported     one over the other. When the radio is switched off you can only see the central Radiomarelli emblem, when you switch on the set the two fabrics are illuminated and you can have a very suggestive view of the broadcaster stations.

The four knobs, located on the front side, have the following functions (from left to right): power switch/volume control, two positions tone switch, band rotating switch and tuning.
