Happy 90th anniversary Pininfarina!

Almost a century of history. A small artisan workshop turned into an iconic brand synonymous with beauty and elegance and recognized as a symbol of Made in Italy all over the world.
It was May 22nd, 1930 when Battista Farina, known as “Pinin”, signed the deed of incorporation of Carrozzeria Pinin Farina. Today Pininfarina celebrates its 90th anniversary.
Listed on the Borsa Italiana since 1986, Pininfarina has offices in Italy, Germany, China and the United States, with a prestigious design portfolio that includes transportation, industrial design, architecture, interiors, nautical and automotive design. Pininfarina’s human centered approach to design marries the best of each vertical to produce a wholly unique result every time.
In the image is the Cisitalia 202 designed by Pininfarina in 1946. This was the first car in the world permanently displayed in New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Building on aerodynamic studies developed for racing cars, the Cisitalia offers one of the most accomplished examples of coachwork conceived as a single shell, a design achievement that transformed postwar automobile body design.
