Flooded espresso machines during the 1966 Flood of River Arno

Here’s one from the archives… In the aftermath of the great 1966 Flood of the River Arno in Florence, Italy, many shops’ espresso machines were destroyed or otherwise rendered useless. La Marzocco s.r.l. accepted these machines and replaced them with new La Marzoccos so that the people of Florence can at least enjoy espresso as they work through the difficult clean up.

Bonus points if you can Name That Machine!
