In the '80s Gundam was aired in Italy. Actually it was a baddly dubbed,
clandestine version and was soon stopped but we saw it nonetheless and
some urban legend wants local TV stations still airing it.

Amuro Rei-Peter Rei
This name was used in a funny manner: everyone always calls him "Peter
Rei", his father too!

Frau Bow-Mirka

The translator played with the name, "scia" (sheea) in Italian means
"tail of the comet" too so he became somehow Tail of the Red Comet.


Ajane: she's called both Mathilda and Majirda(!!!).

Haro-Pallina (little ball)


Tri Black Star-Triplice Satellite Nero (Triple Black Satellite)

Ran Baral- Ranba Ral

A baoa Q- Obacu


The MS are in the first episode called "guerrieri d'acciaio" (steel
warriors) but later they are called MS. MA are called Mobile Arma (arma
means "weapon").
The Core Fighter was called Gear Fighter. The White Base was translated
as Base Bianca.
The Gundam is badly pronunced as its "u" is like "you". The Gouf was
called "Gerf".
The Guncannon was italianized in Guncannone.
