The FIAT Historic Centre, the brand’s automotive museum, was inaugurated in 1963. It is housed in an Art Nouveau building built during the first extension (1907) of the workshops located on Corso Dante, FIAT’s first headquarters. It now houses a collection of automobiles, souvenirs and artistic objects covering the entire history of the company.
The visitor will find a large part of the models produced by FIAT, since the very first 3 1/2 HP of 1899. If FIATThe visitor will find a large part of the models produced by FIAT, since the very first 3 1/2 HP of 1899. FIAT is best known today for its popular models, including the iconic FIAT 500, revisited in a more “fashionable” form in recent years. However, FIAT also built sports cars, racing cars and even speed records. Browsing the exhibition, we will of course discover the popular saga Topolino, 500, 600. Sport and racing are represented by the monstrous Mefistofele, a record car from 1924, the 8V and Dino sports cars, or the charming 1100 convertible.
FIAT is also a well-known manufacturer of commercial vehicles, buses and trucks and tractors (the1st dates from 1919). But FIAT is also boat engines, railcars (the Littorina equivalent to the French Micheline) and even a fighter jet, the G91 used by NATO forces. We find all these machines in the Historic Center, often put into perspective by photos or posters, or household objects. Several facilities allow visitors to follow the evolution of production methods. The building also houses the company’s huge archives, accessible by appointment.
