Event Details


Birthplace: Turin, Italy
Date of death: 07.08.2008
Place of death: Turin, Italy

Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo – illustrious names that stand for Italian automobile design. Without Pininfarina, though, they most likely wouldn’t be where they are today. In its more than 80-year history the Turin-based company created icons such as the Ferrari Enzo or the Maserati Quattroporte. Pininfarina wasn’t limited to cars, though: They opened themselves to industrial design, designing coffee machines for Lavazza and even the torch for the 2006 winter Olympics in Turin. Andrea Pininfarina tragically died in a car accident, when a motorist failed to give way and hit his Vespa scooter.
