Marcello Gandini was born in Torino Italy in 1938. In previous articles, we have discussed the works of two other prolific Italian designers, Giorgetto Giugiaro's and Leonardo Fioravanti. Interestingly, all three were born within only several weeks of one another that year. There must have been something magical about that time, because these three designers are responsible for more of our automotive fantasies than perhaps any other group of designers combined.
Gandini's career stands out from the other two in the sense that his client list was quite diverse. His portfolio includes work for Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Ferrari and Dino, Lamborghini, Lancia, Maserati, BMW, De Tomaso, Iso Rivolta, Citroen, and Renault.
