Design: An interesting flared panel in the lower segment, which encompasses the spindle hole, providing adequate and balanced space for all components. The Italians were on the leading edge of industrial design in the 1950s, producing stylish cars, motorcycles -- and typefaces, such as the condensed initials of the label name.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Dimitar Malchev of Bulgaria. Alternate colour scan (below) courtesy of collector Graham Farnell of the U.K.
