Aldo Brovarone has passed away at the age of 94. The Piedmontese designer has been responsible for the style of some of the most beautiful cars of all time. Always fascinated by aeroplanes and cars, after the Second World War during which he was deported to Poland, he met Piero Dusio, founder of Cisitalia, a company where he started his career in 1953 as style manager. Brovarone’s projects were immediately noticed by Pininfarina, a company he joined in 1954 and where he worked for over thirty years (since 1974 as head of the styling department).
There are many cars designed by Aldo Brovarone during his career at Pininfarina: from the Alfa Romeo Duetto to the Ferrari Dino 246 GT and GTS, from the Ferrari 500 Superfast II (1960) to the Lancia Gamma Coupé. Brovarone latest projects were for Stola, a Turin-based coachbuilder: in 1996 he designed the Stola Dedica, a prototype built on a Fiat Barchetta chassis and dedicated to Gianni Agnelli and in 1998 the Stola Abarth Monotipo. In the two-year period 2005-2006 the Porsche Ruf RK Spyder and Coupé for Studiotorino.
