LA PAVONI: Since 1905 Coffee Machine HAND MADE in Milano | Italy

La Pavoni Spa was founded in Milan in 1905 thanks to Desiderio Pavoni in a little workshop at Via Parini. His first invention was patented by Luigi Bezzera, on 1st September 1902, duly registered at the Milan State office on 19th September 1903, and gave life to the first espresso coffee machine for bar called “Ideale”.
In 1948 La Pavoni manufactured its first machine with horizontal boiler.
This project was conceived by Gio Ponti, Antonio Fornaroli and Alberto Rosselli, whose cooperation gave birth to model 47 called “LA CORNUTA” (“The horn”) because of its brewing groups standing out from the cylindrical boiler body.
1956 saw the creation of the “Concorso” series. This was a project developed by Bruno Munari and Enzo Mari, where the body has a particular design; the modular geometrical parts, put together, enable the building of machines with more than one group, in which the stress is put on the colour matching.
In 1961 the so-called “Brewing” commercial machine was introduced onto the market. The temperature always remains the same, water heats up and – through the brewing groups – is directed onto the pressed coffee, obtaining one or two cups of tasty and creamy coffee.
The cooperation between Alberto Rosselli and Angelo Tito Anselmi gave life in 1961 to a model called “BRASILIA”.
In the same year, 1961, developing an idea by a Milanese artisan, the first electrical machine for domestic use was created. This machine could it to brew espresso coffee and hot drinks, just like the way they were made in the coffee bar. That machine was called “Europiccola”.

Zero residui, record made in Italy

Due terzi dei prodotti agroalimentari italiani sono privi di residui di agrofarmaci, un terzo presenta residui entro i limiti di legge mentre le irregolarità sono ferme allo 0,6%, pari a un campione ogni 200 analizzati. I dati racchiusi nell’ultimo rapporto di Legambiente (provocatoriamente chiamato “I pesticidi nel piatto”) sono decisamente rassicuranti, ma non bastano a curare l’ansia da sicurezza dell’associazione ambientalista. Il presidente Vittorio Cogliati Dezzapunta infatti il dito contro i multiresidui. A suo dire la presenza di più residui entro i limiti di legge celerebbe rischi per la salute, mai provati scientificamente. Nello stesso report di Legambiente – elaborato su dati forniti da Arpa, Asl e uffici pubblici regionali – i campioni con multiresidui scendono al 17% (erano 18,5% nel 2011).
