La Pavoni World.

An Ideal Beginning with "Ideale", the first Espresso Coffee Machine

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".

The Revolutionary Horizontal Coffee Machine

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.

Enthusiasm and Design

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.

Modern Revolutions

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".

La Pavoni means "Espresso wordlwide"

In 1972 the company realised model "LP" which improved the technical aspect and reliability without disturbing the design.
In 1974, the "Europiccola" was coupled with the new machine, the "Professional", whose boiler enabled to obtain 16 coffees to be made consecutively. This model was equipped with a manometer indicating the boiler pressure.

Myth and development

La Pavoni continued to produce each model both in the lever-operated and continuous-delivery version.
From the early 80's to today, the Pavoni products have been designed by Carlo Galizzi.

LA PAVONI TODAY



Since the middle of the eighties, the company has been studying new ideas and creating panels in thermoplastic materials, speeding up the production cycle considerably. Great attention has been paid to ergonomics, as well as to research into new technological developments.

In the commercial market, besides the traditional lever and semiautomatic machines, some electronic, some with volumetric dosing, and other reliable models have been introduced. The latest one, a fully automatic modular machine, enables espresso coffees and cappuccinos to be prepared in a few seconds, excluding all manual operation.

The same principles are also applied to the domestic machines, which include a wide range of models enabling the preparation of excellent coffee at home.

Leaders in domestic machines, the Europiccola and Professional represent a co-ordination of elegance, quality and reliability; manufactured since 1961, these machines will never be out of fashion; the Professional is exhibited in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

On 29 January 1999 La Pavoni obtained the UNI EN ISO 9001 certification (number 9130 PAV2) and IQ Net - registration number IT-8070 issued by the competent Certification Institutes and the conformity to the norms ISO 9001:2000 of 14 November 2003.
