1952 Olivetti Studio 44 Serial # 742353 1952 Olivetti Studio 44 typewriter, Serial # 742353 Massimo Martelancz's 1952 Olivetti Studio 44 typewriter. 2024-06-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Massimo Martelancz: 1952 Olivetti Studio 44 Serial # 742353 This Olivetti Studio 44 belongs to the earliest specimens produced in the first year of production (serial numbers for Studio 44 begin with 701001, lower serial numbers are actually late 1950s/early 1960s and this, for what I can see in the galleries posted on this site for Studio 44, creates confusion for correct dating). The first series had thin black keys and light brown body color, later light blue color was added and some variations in the keyboard and paper rest (see last photos). Other than that the machine remained the same for all 16 years of production from 1952 to 1968.

I have been an Italian typewriter collector for many many years. At that time, I loved very old typewriters from late 1800s to early 1900s. After a break of a few years I returned to collect typewriters but no longer so old, I prefer now the design of the 40's, 50's and 60's. Yes, I am an affectionate collector of Olivetti, of course, but I'm attracted to all the other brands from that period, not just Italian.
