Auto e Moto d’Epoca
24 - 27 October, 2019
- Fiera di Padova
At Auto e Moto d’Epoca 2019, held at Fiera di Padova, the Fondazione Gino Macaluso per l’Auto storica exhibited two masterpieces of car design: the 1968 Bizzarrini 5300 GT and the 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4.
Thanks to the cooperation with the Fondazione Ferrero Comotto in Turin, the two cars were paired to extraordinary objects of Italian design to create a dialogue. As Gino said: “I think that the Italian car is one of the most vivid expressions of creativity in this century.”
The Primavera armchair by Franca Helg, the Elica lamp by Cesare Leonardi and Franca Stagi, the magazine rack by Rodolfo Bonetto, the iconic Grillo telephone by Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper and the P 40 armchair by Osvaldo Borsani, all items of the Fondazione Ferrero Comotto collection, together with the Gran Turismo cars, tell the story of a very prolific time in Italian design, which involved all aspects of life.
