This book narrates the history of the Fiat 500 and the models that came before and after it.
A true icon of Italian lifestyle, the 500 was actually supposed to be a niche product, but in just few years, its elegance and affordability made it one of the best selling cars, with 4 million units manufactured and sold in a 20 year lifespan. This volume recounts the story of this Italian symbol from the early models, through the iconic 1957 Nuova 500, up to the current version.
Massimo Condolo was born in Turin in 1968 and currently lives near Milan. He is the author of several books about the history of on-road transportation and the railway. He also works as a journalist with various Italian magazines about transportation.
