Wow. Never knew that Steve Jobs has an Italy connection.I didn't even knew that he was inspired by Olivetti

Tony Stocco

It's so obvious now... What would you expect from a person driving a beautiful Italian sports car? A sleek, aluminum and glass device or a bulky hunk of plastic?

Thanks for this article. I never would have thought about a connection between Olivetti and Steve Jobs. Now I am thinking maybe Steve Jobs is like a Michelangelo!

Steve was a true inspiration to us all ... he did a great job.


We still have our old typewriter, we purchased this way back 1986. It is still working and useful.


I used an Olivetti Lettera 22, my grandmother had one!
