Very worthwhile if you're interested in typewriters or the architect, Carla Scarpa, as it's a beautifully designed building. However, the museum is quite small and there is not that much to see for the price of the ticket.
The old typewriters in the window captured my attention and brought back memories of first lessons in touch typing. Olivetti was one the big names then.
This is a tiny museum dedicated to the world of Olivetti. The information on the wall said the museum was open to the public but it was mostly devoid of any visitors.
Interesting little gallery just off St Marks square. Its quite the contrast sat in among 16th century architecture. The space is pleasant to walk around and the design is appealing. Its not everyone's cup of tea though but fans of Scarpa's work will love it
This is a great spot to witness the work of Carlos Scarpa. It's a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of San Marco and you can time travel into the mid-20th century. Elegant workmanship. A must for architecture students.
This space with its modern design (vintage 1960) provides indeed an interesting contrast with the 16th Century building in which it is located. It does display vintage Olivetti typewriters and adding machines in its windows. If their sleek design appeals to you, then spend the 5 euros to go in. Otherwise just take a quick peek thru the windows and...
A very interesting mid-century modern space designed by Venetian architect Carlo Scarpa in great contrast to the byzantine and gothic styles that abound in the city, and a quiet place in the midst of the madness of Saint Mark's Square. A small entrance fee but worth the stop.
