This typewriter is an italian Lettera 22 I bought on Ebay. In year 1951, Olivetti was still producing the first model, with the name of the brand embossed over the paper table. This version has no red tabulation key.

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.
