And the newly created Carrozzeria Pinin Farina the month of September, in which Milan AutoClassica is staged, brought good luck: “in September I had sold a Dilambda spider cabriolet to the Queen of Romania and I was starting to have a small Gotha among my customers” – yes he reads in a writing by Pinin, and his name has since become a guarantee of exclusivity between rulers, diplomats, maraja, sheikhs, and actors.
Another focus of ASI will be dedicated to the numerous Lombard motorcycle manufacturers, in particular at Moto Guzzi which will be 100 years old in 2021.
