Moscow, an exhibition on Nuccio Bertone’s cars

The Italian Embassy in Russia has sponsored an exhibition entitled ‘Le Automobili di Nuccio Bertone-Cento Anni di Stile Italiano (Nuccio Bertone’s Cars – One Hundred Years of Italian Style), organised in collaboration with the National Automobile Museum in Turin, the Bonfanti Mivar Museum in Bassano del Grappa and the Russian GON Museum. The initiative, which is part of the events celebrating the cross-fertilisation year of the Italian Museums with the Russian Federation, opened on 12 August and will remain open at the GON Museum at the VDNKh in Moscow until 12 September.

The exhibition is a tribute to Italian automotive design through one of the most influential figures in the history of design in the sector. In over a century of activity, the Turin-based Bertone body shop has created models that have become part of the history of cars and design, from the first cars with Giovanni Bertone, the founder of Bertone company, to the history of excellence, creative exploration and the evolution of the concept cars created by Nuccio Bertone.

Nuccio Bertone’s work was characterised by exclusive styling and the use of new technologies. Each example is the embodiment of the imagination and freedom of the designers who worked with the Italian entrepreneur, free from commercial contamination and engineering constraints, creating models that have identified essential passages in the concept of the automobile as a particular and fascinating object, some examples becoming authentic objects of art, such as the Lamborghini Miura, on display at the MOMA in New York.

The exhibition arrives in Moscow, with even richer content, after being exhibited in Ekaterinburg on the occasion of the Innoprom International Industry and Innovation Fair. Italy participated as a partner country and guest of honour.
