Renzo Carli was born in Pisa on September 8 1916. He married Gianna Pininfarina in 1947. He entered the Air Force Academy and subsequently graduated in Aeronautical Engineering from Turin Polytechnic in 1941. He served in the Armed Forces until the end of World War II. In 1946 Renzo Carli joined Shell's Technical Servicing Division. In 1948 he joined Carrozzeria Pininfarina, becoming General Manager in 1958, a position he retained until 1977, and CEO 1961. Starting with the planning for the new plant in Grugliasco in 1956, Battista "Pinin" started to groom his replacements–Sergio his son and Renzo Carli his son-in-law. In the Pininfarina Group, Renzo Carli occupied the following positions: CEO of Pininfarina S.p.A., Director of Industrie Pininfarina S.p.A., Director of Pininfarina Studi e Ricerche S.p.A., Director of Pininfarina International S.A., Director of Pininfarina Investments and Trading Ltd. Renzo Carli made a decisive contribution to Pininfarina's expansion from tiny workshop handcrafting one-off models to order, or very limited editions, to its current industrial dimension in a growth process that has gone hand in hand with the boom in car ownership in Italy.

We'll publish a biography on him on the occasion of his anniversary or when it will be reached a sufficient number of cars.
