The idea of the car for all was born after the First World War and began to materialize with models like the 509 and the 508 Balilla, to then arrive in 1936 at the 500 Topolino, the first real Italian utility car. After the war we finally witnessed the boom of the popular car with the 600 and, immediately afterwards, with the unbeatable 500. The tradition continues with the 850, the modern 127 with front wheel drive and the 126. From the inspiration of Giorgetto Giugiaro the protagonists of the Eighties arrive: the very successful Panda and the One. Passing through the sixteenth, seventeenth and various Punto, the volume reaches up to contemporary models: the New Panda, the Grande Punto and the newborn 500.
