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.
Enricos book goes back in time to the historical date of November 1901, which marks the birth in Milan of
the first patented Italian espresso machine by Bezzera. 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.
