The Fondazione Cirulli has cooperated in the publishing of the book "Congegni sapienti. Stile Olivetti: il pensiero che realizza."

March 2, 2017

Exhibitions, company flagship stores, films, posters, products, and people that created Olivetti’s great corporate history are the protagonists of this volume, which seeks to explore the characteristics of Olivetti’s style through the analysis of archival documents from the Associazione Archivio Storico Olivetti in Ivrea. What emerges is that Olivetti’s style is the result of a single corporate vision, which led to the creation of almost sentient machines. These, in turn, will illustrate to readers the form and function of Olivetti’s inventions as well as the cultural identity of a company that encapsulates, in many ways, the incredible laboratory of ideas that is Italy.
