If you talk about an object, don't buy it.
But if this object talks to you, then buy it.

If Lucio wouldn't have sent me this crop of a 1915 Italian Newspaper,

Macchina a vapore per Caffè espresso

I wouldn't have found - while researching on it - that 
there was an Export/Import business going by the name A.S. Sassoon in Milano in 1951.

And the question:
What did Mr. Robbiati invent?
is becoming even more difficult to answer.
(i hear some say - in the back of the room - the pressure valve in the knob...
yep! Well, until proof of the contrary... as usual)
