Giorgetto Giugiaro


Giorgetto Giugiaro (born 7 August, 1938) is an Italian car designer, one of the most influential and prolific ever. He initiated the "folded paper" era of the 1970s where the cars were designed with straight lines and sharp edges. As well as a number of supercars, he is responsible for the design of some of the most popular everyday vehicles to grace our streets.

Giugiaro has worked for a number of design studios:

Some of the notable designs he created include:

Alfa Romeo

Bugatti Automobiles SAS

Ferrari

Fiat

Lamborghini

Lancia

Maserati


Others

Giugiaro also created the first MPV in 1978, the Lancia Megagamma, which inspired the Nissan Prairie, the first MPV to achieve mass sales.

In addition to designing cars at least one Bontempi keyboard, the Minstrel, had a Giugiaro-designed case. This is indicated by the embossed label on the underside of the keyboard, which reads:

"Design Giugiaro Made in Italy - Fabriqué in Italie by-par BONTEMPI Potenza Picena (MC)"
