1930s Italian Telepantoscope TV camera tube

G'day all.

I've been on a tech magazine downloading spree on an Italian site featuring Italian radio/TV/electronics mags and more and realizing that in the 1930s Italy had their own version of a TV camera tube the Telepantoscope which is a hybrid electro/mechanical scanning tube, I felt compelled to search for more info/pics on this tube as I am interested in it and there isn't much info on it on Google searching except what the ETF site and TV history site has . Anyhow looked through a bunch of early "Radio E Scienza Per Tutti" magazines from the 30s and from managed to find some more info/pics on this interesting tube and have attached the pics of the pages to this post for all to see. The first 3 pages are from the 15th June 1937 edition and the 4 page is from the 15th March 1938 edition. Here are the links to the mags:
