Maximum Speed: 400 km/h (215 kt) with rotor

Stowable rotor 

Marchetti studied other ways of adding rotors and wings, including a stowable, extendable 2-bladed rotor on an airliner.

I would like to know how you came up with that conclusion when Marchetti is categorized literally everywhere on the internet and in aviation literature as an Italian company. For this project it was a joint venture as Marchetti-Laufer, the latter of which sounds French (and would probably explain the roundel on display models), though I can't find anything about who "Laufer" was.

 I would support hesham here, the Mr. Marchetti in question had the full name Charles Joseph Marchetti (see this patent

https://www.google.com/patents/US3451644 ) and AFAIK had nothing to do with the Italian aircraft designer. Mr. Laufer,

with his full name Theodor Laufer, was German and worked in France after the war, see https://books.google.de/books?id=eJ7oCAAAQBAJ&pg=PA308&lpg=PA308&dq=theodor+laufer&source=bl&ots=YAqYRqfWB5&sig=mUEeATkhbVH1dZ6TKl6Ik0
C5WCw&hl=de&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi37NzqnuTMAhWLBiwKHTGiCuoQ6AEIJjAC#v=onepage&q=theodor%20laufer&f=false, page 308

Honestly I couldn't find a résumé, but those Marchetti VTOL designs were once shown in the vstol.org paper about French

VSTOl jet aircraft.

Hesham and Jens, thanks for correcting my bit of ignorance about that! I never knew of the existence of the other designer named Marchetti until now. I'll organize the list when I can.

Another patent (https://www.google.com/patents/DE1108081B?cl=en) implies, that he worked

at least around the late '50s, early '60s for Sud Aviation. Hard to tell, of course, if he really was

French, or just worked there, but the much better known Italian company Savoia-Marchetti, later

SIAI Marchetti, was named after Alessandro Marchetti, chief engineer and designer there for quite

a long time.

Allocating names is offten difficult and in aviation none the less. Just remember René Leduc, who is

often quoted as having designed light aircraft after his ramjet developments. In fact, there were

two designers of the same name during the same period in France ... difficult indeed !  smile
