I open a topic with Italian inventions and discoveries from the year 1880 to today, between curious things and serious things, two hundred years of technological and scientific progress.

Italian Innovation since 1880
Attila,

Four million Italians immigrated to the USA between 1880 and 1930.
They ended up inventing everything over here.

Thank you for your Italian contribution to American technology.
Hey, the great food was just a bonus.

Italian cuisine is a gift, a contribution to enriching other cultures.

Aside from experimental aircraft, before and during the Second World War Italy produced antiquated and slow aircraft. It can be said that the conversion of many aviation industries in the post-war period was good because they created more jobs and produced better. MV Agusta also produced airplanes but later split in two by building helicopters under American license and on its own, motorcycles. The first MV was called Vespa 98 but before it another Italian brand, Miller Balsamo, had taken that name. Agusta, believing that it was registered, abandoned it; later Piaggio discovered that the name was not registered at all and appropriated it by registering as his own.
