Exclusive: Roberto Giolito on the Fiat ESV 1500

CDN Fiat H Hub - Fiat 1500 ESV - side

In Part 1 of this series, Fiat’s design maestro takes CDN on a tour of his favourite designs in the Fiat Heritage Hub in Turin

Fiat recently opened a dedicated space called the Heritage Hub at its historic Mirafiori manufacturing site in Turin where it now keeps examples of its most important – and sometimes highly unusual – cars from a 120-year back catalogue. Every marque under the Fiat Group umbrella is represented (except Maserati which has its own place in Modena), equating to some 250 cars from Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Fiat and Lancia, spread out in some style and with room to breathe, across the 15,000 sq ft facility. Beyond the rows of classics lined up by brand, there are also mixed-marque selections grouped by theme, from record-breaking prototypes to style and rally thoroughbreds.
