Released in 1987 and designed by Mario Bellini and Alessandro Chiarato, the ET personal 55/56 has arguably the most striking design of any personal electronic typewriter. All subsequent Olivetti ETP, PT and Lettera E 500 series portables (including a limited edition “Azuri” Praxis 100 released to coincide with the 1992 World Cup) are derivatives of the original ET Personal 55/56 pairing.

It’s a later series, but likely to be similar in terms of ribbon and wheel insertion/removal and basic functions. Can’t guarantee it, though 😉
Thank you! Just one more question please if I may,
Would this manual be similar in terms of the general usage?, cartridge replacement, setup, etc
Thank you! Appreciate the help!
I’m afraid not. The closest I have is: https://writelephant.com/2018/04/11/olivetti-et-2250-et-2450-instruction-guide/
