Italian Priority documents to US patent- can't find?

Post by Fixated » Wed Apr 07, 2021 9:12 am

So, on a familiar to me US Patent from the early 1960s, there is mention of earlier priority, referring to a patent application and / or perhaps issue, in Italy a few years previous.

I am having difficulty finding anything more about this. Were such documents simply not added to the electronic database, or did the Italians simply not save such paperwork? Or perhaps I should direct such a search at the USPTO? Alternatively, perhaps the ID numbers are faulty?

What I have is this: An issued US Patent 3,166,269 to Mr. Elio Veroli (long since deceased).
The bibliographic data here on Espacenet gives me this:

Priorities
IT23360A·1960-01-05
Application
US24340762A·1962-12-10
Publication
US3166269A·1965-01-19

Now, as said, I am interested in that Italian document from 1960. Maybe even that US Application. How to find?

Further, the original document looks like this. Similar, but a few more numbers to choose from:

I would be very grateful for any help in pursuing this further. Thank you.

Additionally to the patent, you might be interested to read this blog about Elio Veroli and his associate Gianni Sganzerla https://www.antipes.it/marca_everol_it.html
