Morionado purchased two shops: the ‘Grand-Hotel Ligur’ in the city-centre Piazza Carlo Felice, and the American Bar’ at the Galleria Nazionale Via Roma. Morionado’s era saw coffee being very popular in Italy. Customers had to wait for their coffee to arrive, which caused inconvenience.
The first machine to be introduced to the public was in 1884.
