1902 – 1908
Faccioli was an Italian automotive manufacturer based in Turin with operations in 1902 through 1908. In 1891 Aristide Faccoli patented a gasoline engine to be installed in automobiles. This made Ceirano Giovanni aware of Faccioli. In 1898 the company was founded and Faccioli was made the technical director. Just one year later he built the small "Welleyes" car with a 2-cylinder 663 cc boxer engine. The same year, Fiat took over the company. The politics of the new owner, which actually only built on mass production, was incompatible with the experimentation of Faccioli. So he gave up the technical director position and was replaced by the engineer Enrico. Although Faccioli continued working for Fiat until 1905, he founded the company Ing. A. Faccioli & C to automotive and marine engines in 1902. From 1905 he also built cars with 12, 16 and 24 bhp engined as well as coaches were built by him. A few months later the company name was changed and it was limited to the production of some experimental models with 1-cylinder 9 hp engines and 4-cylinder engine with 12 horsepower. In 1906 the company was dissolved and formed a new company which developed and improved with a cooler running engine already developed by Faccioli. After the final dissolution of this company Faccioli went to SPA and dealt with the aircraft development.
