LETTERA 305 TYPEWRITING ROOM
The room is dedicated to the icon object that, in the past century revolutionized the concept of “writing”: the typewriter.
The black and red band is a reminder of the ink ribbons, the name of the room refers to the famous typewriter “Lettera 22” and the gigantic keyboard on the ceiling allows the guest to lie on the bed and “type” imaginary letters. The room contains also two rarities: the portable typewriter “Valentine” designed by Ettore Sottsass, complete with instructions, and a vinyl record for stenographers, with the voice of writer Mario Soldati, to be used with the typewriter “Lettera 22”.
The room was created by the set designer Mauro Tinti in collaboration with Biografilm Festival in 2012.
