The Global Reach Of Italian Auto Designers

Italy owns a wealth of brilliant industrial car designers among them Giovanni Michelotti, whose prolific designs extended beyond Italian borders.

Among them was the Triumph TR4 under the British banner and BMW 700 in Germany.

He was the first European to influence the Japanese car industry which was on the rise in the 1970s.

Ercole Spada also left an imprint on German automobiles through his work on BMW 5-series.

Volkswagen in particular was dependent on the creative minds of Marcello Gardini and Giorgetto Giugiaro.

Over the next few posts, I'll be expanding the roster of masters of automobile designers from Italy.
