Sinclair VS Commodore: la Grande Guerra informatica ricomincia da Varese Retrocomputing

Varese Retrocomputing 2007

Ci fu una guerra.
La Prima Grande Guerra Informatica.
Così cruenta da far sembrare il precedente conflitto Atari-Mattel-Coleco una scaramuccia da educande.

E' stata la guerra fra Sinclair e Commodore, una guerra senza quartiere che ha segnato una generazione.
A questo epico scontro d'altri tempi è dedicata l'edizione 2007 di Varese Retrocomputing, organizzato come ogni anno da Bruno Grampa, uno dei massimi esponenti italiani dell'informatica storica.

Bruno, che ho avuto il piacere di conoscere in occasione dell'Open Day del Museo Apple (potete ascoltare il suo intervento qui), mi invia questo comunicato stampa che volentieri riporto.

*"Varese Retrocomputing 2007"*

*Quinta edizione*

1 Luglio - Dalle 10:00 alle 18:00
Via Lungo Lago Isella 4 - 21039 Valganna (VA)

Varese Retrocomputing 2007
Due aziende, negli anni '80, sono state assolute protagoniste dell'informatizzazione di massa: Sinclair e Commodore. Entrambe oggi praticamente non esistono più ma la loro storia è stata costellata da una continua alternanza tra prodotti geniali e assoluti flop. Varese Retrocomputing 2007 vuole rendere omaggio a queste due aziende esponendo, in parallelo, praticamente tutti i principali prodotti commercializzati.

A partire dalle prime calcolatrici fino agli ultimi computer sarà possibile ripercorrere la storia e la rivalità tecnologica che ha visto due filosofie diametralmente opposte contendersi il primato del computer più venduto al mondo.

Sinclair e Commodore non sono infatti solo Spectrum e C64 ma anche radio, amplificatori, strumenti di misura, calcolatrici, televisori, computer portabili, console da gioco, tricicli elettrici!

L'esposizione permetterà di fare un salto indietro nel tempo con tutti i computer presenti accesi, funzionanti e disponibili per essere usati nuovamente. A corredo potrete trovare riviste, libri, giochi, periferiche e tutto quello che in quel periodo era in uso. Visite guidate, organizzate ad intervalli periodici, vi permetteranno di
rivivere, con ancora più passione, quello che in quel periodo accadeva.

Varese Retrocomputing 2007 si terrà nella splendida cornice del lago di Ghirla. Situato a pochi minuti da Varese ci permetterà di accontentare anche le mogli (o i mariti!) degli appassionati che potranno passare una piacevole giornata in riva al lago o passeggiando nei dintorni. Abbiamo pensato anche ai più piccoli che potranno distrarsi in una area verde attrezzata con giochi.

Ulteriori informazioni, il programma ufficiale e le modalità per partecipare sono disponibili sul sito internet

Per avere un'idea delle meraviglie che aspettano i partecipanti vi lascio con alcune foto della splendida calcolatrice Sinclair Sovereign.
L'ha portata Bruno "in tour" al museo All About Apple il giorno dell' Open Day, e non ho saputo resistere a scattare qualche foto. : - )



PS: il "triciclo" del comunicato stampa è ovviamente il leggendario C-5 !
