In 1908, Jewish-Italian industrialist Camillo Olivetti founded the company that bears his name, and over the decades, produced cutting-edge typewriters and office equipment. When Olivetti unveiled the Programma 101—arguably the world's first desktop computer—in 1964, he found himself in the crosshairs of the Mafia, the CIA, and IBM. As she traces the history of the brilliant and idealistic Olivetti family throughout the 20th century, Meryle Secrest also probes the powerful forces arrayed against them, and reopens the case on the mysterious 1960 death of Camillo's forward-thinking heir and successor, Adriano.
