FROM THE FIRST PC TO THE FIRST SPACE-BOUND ESPRESSO MACHINE

Exhibition-On View from Nov.13 to Nov. 25 2015 Mon/Fri 10am to 5pm

“The first desktop computer in the world”: this is how America welcomed the launch of Programma 101 (P101) in New York in 1965. Created by a small group of “crazy” young Italian engineers at Olivetti, P101’s success was so huge, that the US space agency NASA bought it and used it for the first mission to the moon. Since then, Italy has continued to make significant contributions to progress in technology, up to the 2015 experiment of ISSpresso, the first ever system for brewing espresso coffee in the extreme conditions of outer space, made by Argotec and Lavazza. Project by the Make in Italy Foundation cdb Curators: Maria Teresa Cometto and Riccardo Luna Organization: Alberto Luna Design: MAD Matiz Architecture & Design; dotdotdot Opening: November 12, 2015 , 6pm THE EXHIBITION IS MADE POSSIBLE BY THE GENEROSITY OF Peter S.
