1906 – 1910
Darracq Italiana (Società Italiana Automobili Darracq) was an Italian automotive manufacturer based in Naples with operations from 1906 through 1910. The French Darracq models were well known in Italy and sold well here. In 1906 to evade the duty, the parent company in Suresnes, decided to base an assembly plant in Italy. The result was a plant based in Naples, called the Società Italiana Automobili Darracq company. Years later they realized the disadvantages of the site since several other automotive manufacturing companies were set up in Milan. This is were most of the suppliers of automotive parts were at home. The larger Darracq models were still manufactured in France and imported. In Italy they produced the 8/10 HP Model and a series of Fiaker models with 4-cylinder engines called the 14/16 HP type. Later, when sales fell off in 1909, they sold the Darracq factory plant in Portello to a group of entrepreneurs from Lombard. The new owners were also involved in the establishment of A.L.F.A..
