1965 Olivetti Studio 44 Serial # 325030 1965 Olivetti Studio 44 typewriter, Serial # 325030 Ton Sison's 1965 Olivetti Studio 44 typewriter. 2017-01-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ton Sison: 1965 Olivetti Studio 44 Serial # 325030 Designed by the Italian architect Marcello Nizzoli in collaboration with engineer Guiseppe Beccio, the Olivetti-Underwood Studio 44's special feel, a perfectly calibrated resistance that marks the typing action; not to mention a stability that's close to what you'd get from a standard, are qualities that are pretty hard to beat. And as an example of Nizzoli's sculptural stylistic signature, the Studio 44 is a true design statement. Made in Barcelona, Spain.

For me, way up there both in aesthetics and typing action.

In a parallel universe, I was once the Senior Vice-President of Design (Typewriter Division) at Ing. C. Olivetti & C.,S.p.A., Ivrea, Italy. In the real universe, I'm a Chicago-based casual collector and hunter of Olivetti typewriters, and related ephemera, publications, and film sightings.
