#DanteGiacosa

Dante Giacosa was an Italian automobile designer and engineer responsible for a range of Italian automobile designs and for refining the front-wheel drive layout to an industry-standard configuration. He studied engineering at the Polytechnic University of Turin until 1927. After completing his compulsory military service he joined Fiat in 1928. Giacosa was engineering manager at Fiat by 1937. Wealthy Italian industrialist Piero Dusio approached Giacosa in 1944 with a request to design a single seat racing car that could be purchased for a relatively low price. This he did in his free time away for the Fiat factory. The design utilised components from the Fiat 500 and 508C. The resulting car the Cisitalia D46 was on sale in 1946. Giacosa did the initial design work on the next Cisitalia model, a two-seat sports car, the Project 202. Giacosa had become director of the engineering division of Fiat by 1950. He retired from his full-time position with Fiat in 1970. 

 

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