Arione its a five tubes superheterodyne set, it has a great sensitivity and, at the same time, a good selectivity.

Chassis and circuit of this radio, are same to the ones of Tamiri and  Nepente models.
The electric diagram is typical, its a successful project, these models work very well and can receive several stations on medium, long and short waves.
The four knob controls has the following functions (from left to right): power switch/volume control, silent switch/tone control, band rotating switch and tuning.

Between the  knobs, you can see a pointer tuning meter which works in series to the anodic circuit of the IF amplifier tube.
