Itaipu Dam And Italian Engineering

Was watching a brief clip about Paraguay the other day on the Internet and learned about the Itaipu dam.

One of the largest hydro-electric powered dams in the world, it borders Brazil and Paraguay.

When I saw images of it, I thought to myself wouldn't surprise me if Italian companies were involved in its construction and sure enough I was right.

It was a joint project with Electroconsult of Italy and IECO in the United States.

Thus continuing Italy's enormous cultural and engineering imprint on world achievements and affairs.
