Looking at the entire range of models manufactured by Radiomarelli certainly this is one of the most rare and really this is the only one that I've ever seen.

Its a two band five valves superheterodyne and the chassis is the same of Vertumno model.
The turntable, which works only 78 laps, has the
pick-up with the interchangeable pin system, like a gramophone. The electric motor is a Paillard mod. 4000 (Swiss made) and the arm was manufactured by Radiomarelli.
The left knob operates the power switch/volume control and the right one is for the tuning. the little knob in overthrown cone shaped lets you choose between medium waves and short waves.
