Giugiaro designed the Volkswagen Golf in 1974

The economic crisis is no longer just at home with dealers and manufacturers, but also with various leading design houses.

Earlier we informed you that Bertone had become history - but at the eleventh hour it was saved in a slimmed-down form and now under the inspiring leadership of Lilli Bertone hopes for a healthy future - that Zagato was half in Indian hands, Pininfarina was saved by the Bolloré syndicate, we heard a few months ago the message that Italdesign has come into the hands of Volkswagen. Through her daughter Lamborghini, 90,1 percent came into the hands of the German car manufacturer. Including the many patents and the brand name! Italdesign was founded in 1968 by Giorgetto Giugiaro and Aldo Mantovani. Initially called Studi Italiani Realizzatione Prototipe Spa and then Italstyling.
