In the years after the war the famous model D.P. 47 was designed, this machine was designed by Gio Ponti. After these models they also started to use the lever brewing groups. Earky examples of these machines are the La Pavoni Lilliput, La Pavoni model 53, La Pavoni Concorso and later the La Pavoni Brasilia. Currently La Pavoni still produces commercial Lever espresso machines.
But the most important product La Pavoni launched was not a commercial machine but a domestic machine, the La Pavoni Europiccola. This product was originally not designed by La Pavoni, but by a small heating element company from Milan. La Pavoni made the europiccola a world wide success.
During the years small changed where done on the machine and in the 70ies there also came a bigger model. The La Pavoni Proffessional. Bascally a Europiccola but bigger.
