Pio Manzù


Born in the picturesque town of Bergamo in 1939, this remarkable individual was none other than the son of the acclaimed sculptor, Giacomo. Fuelled by a profound passion for design, he pursued his education at the renowned Hochschule für Gestaltung in Ulm, where he honed his skills and creative vision. The year 1962 marked a turning point in his career when, alongside Michael Conrad, he achieved a triumphant victory in the prestigious Revue Automobile competition. Their revolutionary concept for a coupé, intended for the Austin Healey 100 chassis, captured the imagination of the automotive world, garnering widespread acclaim.Subsequently, in 1968, he embarked on a new chapter as a consultant for Centro Stile FIAT. His dedication to exploring and redefining small-sized cars showcased his innovative approach to design. Tragically, the world lost this brilliant mind in 1969, leaving behind a lasting legacy that continues to inspire and influence the realm of automotive design to this day.
