Remembering Alessandro Volta

Our Lomo LC-As eat films and drink up batteries... and thanks to the discovery of the great scientist Alessandro Volta, this camera allows you to take wonderful photos! This is a tribute to this great scientist! Read on!

Camnago Volta is a small fraction of the Municipality of Como, situated on a hill just 2.7 km from the city centre. This locations article is dedicated to the famous scientist Alessandro Volta, the inventor of the battery, who lived in Como and retired in this place in 1819. He is buried here.

The battery was invented in 1799, as remembered in this street sign. This small town hosted some scientific conferences in honour of Alessandro Volta in this house, as remembered by the engraving on the wall.

Walking in this small town in the east direction, you can find “Villa Volta”, the preferred autumnal residence of the great scientist, who retired here:

In the garden, you can see many antennas installed by the radio amateurs of Como, who make some international transmissions to remember the scientist every year.

Between the centre of the town and Villa Volta, you can find the small cemetery, where the scientist was buried:

There are many commemorative engravings from radio amateurs, students, and scientific associations:

This small fraction is great also for cycling and walking in nature!

All these photos were taken with my new Lubitel 166+ camera.

The Lubitel 166+ is a loving recreation of the Soviet-era classic. Based on a design that dates back over 60 years, this camera is updated with new features like the ability to shoot both 120 and 35mm film. Shoot mind-blowing images with the Lubitel 166+, available in our Online Shop.

    Great artical. Actuelly, Volta invented the galvonic cell and the electrochemical cell. A battery is two or more cells grouped to increase voltage or amperage. Cells are the building blocks of a battery.
