"In 1945, from sea water near a sewage outflow on Sardinia, Giuseppe Brotzu, a bacteriologist and local politician, isolated a new species of Cephalosporium (named C. acremonium), which sectreted material with strong antibacterial activity. It was later established that this fungus produced several different antibiotics...(including) the first known member of a new family of antibiotics that are now called cephalosporins."
