About Italdesign

The roots of Italdesign Giugiaro go back to 1968 when Giorgetto Giugiaro and Aldo Mantovani set up in Turin, Italy, a design studio that represented an innovative formula for the car industry: a company able to provide creativity, engineering, construction of pre-series prototypes, production start-up assistance and all the support required to put a new vehicle into production. Since 2010 Italdesign Giugiaro is part of the Volkswagen/Audi Group with premises in Italy and offices abroad and a continuously growing workforce.
