Italian Washer Dryer: Zanussi?

Washingartists

Recent walking trip to Puglia and washday. No need for a washer dryer here, just hang it out on the balcony and when the bell strikes 5pm it will be as dry as a bone. This is Ostuni which was a very pleasant interlude on our trip.

Was Zanussi the Italian who invented washer dryers?

Also found this little music shop window which made for a reflective image.
