Rome resort town of Santa Marinella...

Here's where radar was invented in 1937 at the old Torre Chiaruccia:
The old sixteenth century tower, built to spot Islamic pirates, was blown up by the Nazis in February of 1944 (as in Ladispoli, too). All that's left is the foundation and even now the more modern tower you see here in the middle has been abandoned.
