Italian coachbuilders were at the centre of a rush of creativity immediately after the war ended, with fierce competition between the various names, many of which, unfortunately, remain in memory alone. But that memory is nevertheless full of cars that have been carefully preserved and written to everlasting memory.
For this reason, choosing Italian spiders to mention here was a difficult challenge, because they would quite rightly fill up their own book. We have therefore proposed the most significant models, such as the Ferrari 250GT by Pininfarina which inspired the famous California by Sergio Scaglietti, the Miura in its one-off spider version, which still exists, in memory of the great Bertone, and also the truly captivating Maserati A6G by Frua, one of the highest levels of design ever to grace the roads.
And we could not simply stop at superstars: the small, forgotten Innocenti, the ever-popular Fiat 124, the less well-known Fiat Dino and the famous Alfa Romeo Duetto, known to many as the “cuttlefish bone” all contribute to feeding a legend. In a nutshell: a collection of uncompromising memories.
