Italian internet is 30 years old

On 30 April 1986 the CNUCE (National University Centre of Electronic Calculation) of the CNR of Pisa connected to the United States via internet, marking an important moment for our country. Bob Khan, after having experimented with TCP/IP protocol in the various American organizations already connected via Arpanet, decided to extend its application to European research institutes as well.
