Abstract: In May 1994 a first comparison campaign between a superconducting and the IMGC absolute gravimeter has been performed in Brasimone, near Bologna in Italy. The superconducting gravimeter was previously calibrated by means of a moving ring, the mass of which has been measured with the highest accuracy allowed by the actual technology. During the three days of observation with the absolute gravity meter, a maximum, a complete semidiurnal curve and a minimum of the tidal effect has been observed. These data have been used to compute the calibration factor of the superconducting gravity meter; it agrees in a rather satisfactory way with the results of the calibration with the moving mass.
