Constructed in the year 1958 on Piazza San Marco, this architectural delight was created by Carlo Scapa who was commissioned by Adriano Olivetti to convert a petite souvenir shop into an exhibit for typewriters, calculators and other related computing machines. It took Carlo two years to create such a space which is just right enough to display the materials by Olivetti. It is also home to the most antique Ettore Sottsass-designed Valentine typewriter.

Today, this place attracts a lot of visitors owing to not just Olivetti’s collection but the intricate designing of the building that boasts of black slab-marble fountain, coloured Murano glass–tiled floors, white-marble stairway and the teak-wood balcony.
