It is the success story of two pioneers from Baden who conquered the globe with the construction of steam and gas turbines as well as turbochargers. To this day, turbochargers from Brown + Boveri (BBC), now ABB, are still being used to power ocean-going vessels around the world and can be found on the seven seas. Discover anecdotes about the daily life of fascinating individuals from the industrial heyday: e.g. the crane operator Wanda Ferro-Azzali who was compelled to succeed in a male-dominated environment in the 1950s.

A fast-paced experience with exciting anecdotes about the first loft apartments, the bell of the porter's lodge, the "Härdöpfelbunker" (potato bunker), and the patrons' mansions.
