Marcello Gandini (Turin, August 26, 1938) is an Italian designer. He is known for having designed some of the most innovative Italian cars since the mid-sixties. In addition to the automotive sector, he is also involved in industrial design, and furnishing accessories. Passionate about mechanics since childhood, he was head designer of Bertone, succeeding his contemporary Giorgetto Giugiaro, until 1980, when he preferred to continue his activity as a freelance. At Carrozzeria Bertone, he designed some of the most popular Italian sport-cars of the 60s and 70s, including the Lamborghini Miura, Espada, Urraco and Countach, Alfa Romeo Montreal, Lancia Stratos, Fiat X1/9 and Ferrari GT4, without considering the countless concepts. Small, little mentioned, but significant, the collaboration between Gandini and Innocenti of Milan, which led in 1974 to the presentation of the new Mini 90/120, cars that with different mechanical evolutions, and an ante-litteram city car design, remained in production for 19 years.

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