Olivetti Ivrea

I make typewriters using my scowl!
I came across this interesting photo set of the Olivetti factory in Ivrea taken around 1970. I have no idea what they are making, I am sure that a typewriter is in there somewhere. The pictures are amazing and have a wonderfully grainy composition. The photos offer a glimpse behind the svelte lines and carefully crafted industrial design of Olivetti.

I've never have used an Olivetti, but if I find one I'm sure that these pictures will come to mind.
