Looking for Mr. Robbiati's "ATOMIC" italian trademark registration...

...in vain.


Just found the trademark registered by an elderly lady in 1999.

10 years after the closure of the Robbiati business.
(read here)

10 years.

 I found it on this website here.

So let's see what is the mission of the Directorate general for the fight against Counterfeiting:

Fighting counterfeiting and protecting the "Made in italy" mark.

Ennio Delle Vedove - Trademark 83688 (29.10.1947) - "INVICTA"

I presented you already with the coffee maker R6 "Electa" manufactured by both Gaetano & Remo Delle Vedove (here) and patented by Ennio Delle Vedove (here), as well as the Bubble Gum Vending machine (here).

Today i present you "Invicta", the pasta machine whose name was trademarked by Ennio Delle Vedove:

I thank the greatest pasta machine collector ;.) - Lucio Del Piccolo - for sharing these instructions with me:

until yet... unknown patent of Giordano Robbiati in 1940!!!!!!

Heartfelt Gratitude to Pootoogoo

 .... without whom none of the following could i have shared.

You said, Pootoogoo, that

"Knowledge is the only thing that grows when shared."

Doesn't this apply to Love too?

I am deeply convinced that this growth of knowledge through information sharing will result in more appreciation of what people have in front of them... may it be a simple coffee making device.
I think both of us share not only our knowledge and but also our love for something, our passion.

And yet.

And yet, the lines i recently read of Karl Popper just resonate, vibrate in me:

Albert Einstein put it this way:

"As our circle of knowledge expands, so does the circumference of darkness surrounding it."

So OUTSTANDING the recent discoveries you have made, so discouraged i look at the most probable outcome:

We will probably never know what happened in Barcelona between the 03.03.1947 and the 15.02.1949...

very subtle customer service

You probably remember me staying in room 105 (here) and room 402 (here).

Realising that they had been spotted, the Austrian hoteleers decided to completely change their customer service strategy and go the subtle way. 

Great artwork guys!
