I loved the rhythm of my father's secretary typing on an old Olivetti when I was a child. Then I fell in love with the atmosphere in Naked Lunch, the movie constellated with typewriters, and later with Angela Lansbury in Murder she Wrote. It was all about writing, about typing on a magic machine.
When I grew up I started writing myself, for my pleasure; i proudly got an old Kappel of 1928 and, recently, a Lettera 22.
