Temporary exhibitions


MAUTO – Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile di Torino opens the exhibition LANCIA AURELIA 1950 – 2020. TIMELESS MYTH, dedicated n to the fabulous Lancia Aurelia, one of the most advanced and refined cars of the Italian postwar production and a symbol of the extraordinary economic growth of Italy of those years: Torino an extraordinary exhibition divided into two sections that tells, through 18 exceptional standard and custom-built specimens, the evolution of this model, which was first presented in Turin in 1950.

The Lancia Aurelia became popular all over the world as an expression of pure elegance, based on an ideal of polished simplicity, right from its first appearance, thanks to the successful creative and design partnership with Battista Pinin Farina. It was so successful as to be also featured in famous movies like “Il sorpasso” starring Vittorio Gassman and “Et Dieu créa la femme” starring Brigitte Bardot, which turned it into a worldwide icon of style. A “city” car, whose sports lines accommodate the engine and mechanical features that make it a top-performing car also in races. In fact, the Aurelia was extraordinarily successful also in some of the main races of that time: Mille Miglia, Targa Florio, Giro di Sicilia, 24 Ore di Le Mans, Coppa d’Oro delle Dolomiti, and many others.

Cherished by Hemingway and Fausto Coppi, praised by Juan Manuel Fangio, who likened it to a “cup of maté” – the infusion that gives men from the Andes strength and self-confidence – the Lancia Aurelia is rightly considered “a magic moment in car evolution“(Massimo Fila Robattino, curator of the exhibition)
