Technical and Industrial Drawings

As well as those present inside the various archives, the Ansaldo Foundation has to date collected around 100,000 original drawings created from the mid-19th century onwards.


The collection, which still requires reorganisation and can be consulted upon authorisation from the management, has been built up through three main deposits:

The first, dating back to 1980, includes around 50 design drawings (on canvas and in watercolour), from the Gio. Ansaldo & C. made between 1856 and 1880, of boilers, steam vehicles and locomotives

The second deposit, which was received immediately thereafter, includes around 80,000 technical drawings on tracing paper, mostly made between the 1920s and 1940s, relating to Ansaldo's wartime and railway production

The third acquisition was made in 1987 from the Italia di Navigazione company, composed of around 20,000 drawings on paper and holography copies made at the Riuniti dell'Adriatico and Ansaldo S.A. shipyards, covering different design, technical and mechanical elements of ships in operation in the post-war period, such as for example the Cristoforo Colombo, the Leonardo da Vinci, the Michelangelo and the Raffaello.
