Here we have Radiatori from 2 different manufacturers. Inspired by the front grills and radiators of race cars. The pasta on the right I think most provokes that image. Italy’s love of fast cars, of course, inspired Route as well as many other examples representing the machine age.  The one on the left looks more like indoor, warehouse cast iron radiators – not really what it was all about.
