I am a typewriter hunter and collector. I love going to second-hand markets to find typewriters to valorize. I want each of my typewriters to be functional, as I use them all to actually write on. I collect Olivetti and other Italian brands and I prefer all portable and ultra-portable typewriters, from the 30s to the 60s.
