Le Auto dell’Avvocato exhibition opens its doors

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 19, 2013

An exhibition with the title “Le Auto dell’Avvocato” (The Avvocato’s cars) recently opened at the National Automobile Museum (MAUTO). The exhibition is meant to celebrate the memory of Giovanni Agnelli who died a decade ago. Named after him in March 2011, the exhibition shows off a lineup of car models that have been designed to meet Agnelli’s preferences when it comes to both its looks and function. “Le Auto dell’Avvocato” illustrates a journey in the essence of 20th century Italian automobile design until the conception of a new approach in the automotive world, typified by the arrival of tailor-made vehicles. According to Benedetto Camerana, Automobile Museum President, this is the first exhibition he has ever desired for the Museum. He said that this exhibition has similarities with the other exhibitions that it is organizing.

While it uses an obvious Italian theme, it has an “international interest” and was organized with a vital partner. He also said that the cars signify the opportunity for wider considerations. There are three separate divisions in this exhibition. Every area has been made more exciting with graphic, photographic, audiovisual and multimedia material. In the first area, guests can monitor all the phases of Fiat’s iconic history and the most significant events in the country. The second area is intended for Agnelli’s personal cars. Visitors can expect to see Agnelli’s favorite, a Fiat 125.

Other models that will be put on display are a Lancia Thema S.W. Zagato, a Fiat Panda Rock Moretti, a Lancia K Limousine, a Fiat 130 Shooting Brake Maremma, a Fiat 130 Familiare, a Fiat Croma, a Ferrari 360 Speedway, a Lancia Delta Spider Integrale, and a Fiat Multipla Spider. Additional styling and mechanical modifications are featured in all the models. Rodolfo Gaffino Rossi, Director of Mauto, said that Agnelli would invite him in the past to talk about ideas on certain models. He also said that Agnelli would monitor the production versions of the Avvocato’s vehicles, including when they roll out of the factory. He would make sure that the interiors and bodywork colour would suit his tastes.
