Torino is sharing an important history, Royal city of the Savoy family,
huge Baroque architecture, first capital of Italy, and a relevant Automotive
development and industrialization in the last century!
Our association was born in this context, and is looking after the Automotive
and Post-Industrial Heritage of the Piedmont capital. In Turin, not only big
Auto carmaker were born such as Lancia, Fiat, Abarth, Cisitalia, Itala, Diatto,
etc, but also important coachbuilder and Designer which between the late
40’s and early 80’s gave birth to the most fascinating concept and one off
cars that remains still by today standard some of the most original and
innovative icon of the last century.
Few decades ago, the city did count more than 50 coachbuilders highly
qualified in the coachbuilding fields. Prestigious companies such as Pinninfarina,
Ital Design are still in activities, and some other famous name who unfortunately
went off business, such as Bertone, Gandini, Vignale, Ghia, Michelotti, Fissore,
Frua, Allemano, Spada, Revelli, and many others!
Today, through our association, we are proud to keep this heritage and the
tradition alive to the future generation. Thanks to the car collector collaboration,

coachbuilding, we articulated our efforts in 3 main directions to reach our goals:
