Abstract: Radio astronomical data models have become very complex, due to the wide possible range of instrumental configurations available with modern radio telescopes. What in the past was the last frontier for data formats in terms of efficiency and flexibility, is now evolving with new strategies and methodologies enabling the persistence of very complex, hierarchical, and multi-purpose information. Our goal is to define a Radio Data Model and build a Radio Archive, common to the antennas located in Medicina and Noto (managed by INAF - National Institute for Astrophysics), in order to properly serve the different observing techniques and scientific projects involving these instruments, both when exploiting them as single-dish telescopes and when employing the antennas in an Italian interferometric network (VLBI-IT).
