Italian military units during the african campaigns (Libya, Abyssinia etc.).
Are there any archives open to the public? I have a personal interest in this
matters since my grandfather served in the Italian army at that time.
Unfortunally my Italian is not the best but my father reads it fluently,
on the other side he does not understand how to use computers/Internet.
Any information about this topic is much appreciated.

The Italian Army archives do allow access to interested parties. I have a letter from the head of the historical section of the Army General Staff inviting me to pursue my research at the archives. I hope that someday in the not too distant future I will be able to take him up on it. The only address I have is the following:
Stato Maggiore dell'Esercito
V Reparto - Ufficio Storico
Good luck with your research.
