Event Details


Birthday: 07.08.1938
Birthplace: Garessio/Cuneo, I

Giorgetto Giugiaro is more German than you would think when you hear his name. He designed the most German car there is: the Volkswagen Golf I. His company Ital Design, which is part of Volkswagen since 2010, designed the BMW M1 and the legendary DeLorean DMC-12, the Flux-compensator equipped time machine from the “Back to the Furure” trilogy, too. More than 100 of Giugiaro’s designs were brought to market. His body of work doesn’t solely consist of automobiles, though. The official ball of the 2006 Basketball world championships in Japan was designed by him, as well as an odd pasta prototype for Barilla, which was brought to market for a short time in the early 80’s.
