Abstract

By the 1950s, Europe was recovering from the human and material destruction of World War II. The fundamental rebirth of particle physics in this period was especially due to the development and diffusion of the nuclear emulsion technique, which was suitable for international collaboration. Research groups emerging from the catastrophe of the war had little more than their enthusiasm to contribute at the forefront of physics research, but by using the nuclear emulsion technique, they were able to disclose phenomena whose existence no one had suspected.
