Ente Italiano per le Audizioni Radiofoniche
The Ente Italiano per le Audizioni Radiofoniche (EIAR) was the public service broadcaster in Fascist Italy and the only entity permitted to broadcast by the government.
The company was established in 1927, after the partial takeover of the private radio broadcaster Unione Radiofonica Italiana (URI), which since 1924 had been the only organisation authorized to establish radio transmitters and run radio broadcasts in Italy. Between 1929 and 1939, the EIAR presented the first television broadcasting tests in Italy.
