Pellegrino Turri, an Italian inventor, invented a mechanical typing machine, one of the first typewriters in 1801 for his blind lover Countess Carolina Fantoni da Fivizzano.[1] He also invented carbon paper[1] to provide the ink for his machine. Although not much is known about the machine, some of the letters written on it have survived.
