Espresso Made in Italy 1901-1962 by Enrico Maltoni, (in collaboration with Giuseppe Fabris) is one of the only publications in the world describing the most important sixty years of espresso coffee machines through their technical and stylistic development.

From this historic moment onwards, the reader can follow the development of coffee machines, step by step, from the early examples - true brass and copper sculptures enriched with Art Nouveau and Art Decò fashion decorations - to the coffee machines of the Fifties which marked the union' between design and industrial production.
