The Typewriter Database 1990 Olivetti Italia 90 Serial # 5940781 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ton Sison: 1990 Olivetti Italia 90 Serial # 5940781 Being a later incarnation of Olivetti Lettera 35, the Italia 90 is a cast aluminum typewriter with a snappy and stable typing action. Behind this specific shade of azure is an interesting back story- this machine was one of the special edition typewriters at the Olivetti-sponsored Press Center for the 1990 FIFA World Cup hosted by Italy. Azure, of course, is the color of team Italia.

Now if only I could get used to the Italian QZERTY keyboard.
