Brewing is primarily linked with social, economic and technological changes that the Italian fascism mainly advanced during 1930s. In an article by Prof. Jeffrey T. Schnapp” the romance with caffeine and aluminium” covers the concept in depth. Schnapp shows the way Italians wish to move in the age of modernity in early 20 th century. It was considered to be a marriage between 2 very different things, aluminium and caffeine. Aluminium and caffeine are the 2 materials which carry some common symbolism which links them with modernity. Speed, light, mobility, energy, strength as well as electricity are the terms which fit both the materials and they are also associated with new lifestyle which is desired by the modern day men.
