It seems these mattresses are only a single thickness, without a separate box spring, and they tend to be pretty firm. We're getting a bit sick of our memory foam bed, haven't had really good luck with traditional mattress/box spring sets, and would love to find one of these European mattresses here in the US.
I got the impression that a European mattress sort of combines the construction of a typical American mattress and box spring into one single mattress. I know none of the beds we slept on in Italy had separate box springs. But they did all have the same very firm but comfortable feel. I'm pretty sure they were all traditional construction, not foam.

A European king mattress is normally 71 inches wide and 79 inches long, which is 5 inches narrower and 1 inch shorter than an American king. The measurements for this type of mattress are different in the United Kingdom and Ireland, where it is 72 inches wide and 78 inches long. The United Kingdom also has a different name for this type of mattress, which is known as a super king.
