Olivetti M 40 from the first Italian series (1930-1945), excellent condition (with long sled 55 cm)
It was the generous or ungrateful companion of writers and poets, the discrete confidant of directors and screenwriters,
a faithful companion of four generations.
A best selling tool for more than a century, led to the creation and prosperity of
industries around the world and has given birth to a new profession: It is the typewriter.
In 1908 the engineer Camillo Olivetti founded in Ivrea the first typewriters factory
:"ING.c. Olivetti & co". They produced the M1, the first typewriter on which the Italian spirit and
efficiency, as advertised, the great poet himself was guaranteed.
The company became more and more competitive every year, and produced the M20 and the M40 and in 1932. Soon after
the handover from the father, Camillo, to his son, Adriano, the company produced the MP1, the first portable model.
Vintage Olivetti M40 typewriter, completely original, in working condition, without flaws, with long sled, 55 cm, in excellent condition.
