che le rosse torri specchia
sognando a la cerulea Dora
nel largo seno,
fosca intorno è l’ombra di re Arduino…»

In the footsteps of Olivetti
This is indeed a very curious, challenging and original museum “Tecnologicamente” of Ivrea: the history museum Olivetti with strong formative educational impact thanks to its characteristic laboratory. The museum is very interactive, visitors are constantly invited to discover the old machinery operation and technologies in order to understand the evolutionary process. It is very stimulating and educational especially for the little ones. Less curious, but no less fascinating is the MAAM (open-air museum of modern architecture) one along the periphery of Ivrea circuit during which you can enjoy panoramic of architectural culture promoted by Olivetti. Collaborations, never fixed, with the architects had variable duration, depending on architect’s creative talent: as you can see by the architectural path, no building resembles the other, nor form, nor stylistic structure. The purpose of Olivetti, in fact, was to promote creativity in architecture, to give ample room for innovation. To safeguard what is now a fine art, it has been proposed the museum.
