LEGO Minitalia was a theme available only in Italy during the 1970s. It ran from 1970 to 1976. It was long believed that the theme was also produced in Italy in order to comply with Italian importing laws, but it was recently discovered that such laws never really existed and Minitalia sets were sold in Italy alongside regular sets. Minitalia parts were different to regular LEGO parts in several ways. The plastic used was not the standard Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene plastic and the resulting bricks were not as bright in colour as LEGO ABS parts. There was no LEGO logo moulded on the top of studs as most bricks featured hollow studs similar to TECHNIC bricks. The hollow tubing used on the underside of regular LEGO bricks was changed to an X-shaped system. These differences only applied to the basic elements. In total, there were 21 Minitalia sets produced.
