ITALY IS ALIVE TO CORROSION. ON the initiative of Doctor‐Engineer Nicola Varvo, a leading Italian corrosion expert, systematic steps are to be taken to promote the formation in Italy of a corps of young engineers interested and trained in corrosion problems. Every year suitable students in different Italian universities will be selected for special courses on the scientific, technical and practical aspects of corrosion, and a number of them will receive grants to study corrosion problems abroad and exchange information with corrosion experts of other countries. It is expected that as a natural consequence of their special training these young corrosion engineers will acquire and preserve an esprit de corps which will be reflected in the formation of some kind of association for the benefit alike to members and to Italian industry and commerce at large.
