Fioravanti SRL

The company was set up in 1987 as an architectural practice working on the Japanese market, designing homes in Tokyo and several clubhouses for golf courses in the Tokyo area.

In 1991 the Fioravanti diversify the activities into services to the automotive industry, focusing in particular on transport and industrial design.

The company headquarters are housed in Moncalieri, an historic town lying in the Piedmont foothills outside the city of Turin, Italy.

By choosing to work out of a building dating back to the 13th -16th centuries, the company is underlining its corporate philosophy: innovative conceptual design in all fields of transport, using leading-edge technology (CAS, CAD, CAM, CFD) in an ambience permeated with the creative beauty of old-world Italy.

C.E.O. Leonardo Fioravanti worked twenty-four years with Pininfarina, where he personally designed some of the most famous Ferrari road cars and became Managing Director and General Manager of Pininfarinaís research arm, Pininfarina Studi & Ricerche. During the years 1988-1991 he was with the Fiat Group, first as deputy General Manager at Ferrari and then as head of Fiatís design centre.

In 1991 he left Fiat to diversify the activities of his own company, Fioravanti SRL, into services to the automotive industry, focusing in particular on transport and industrial design. The design process harnesses both traditional and advanced methodologies.

From 1991-1993 the company worked exclusively for the Fiat Groupís automobile marques - Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo - developing several projects connected to production programmes. In 1994 the company designed and built "Sensiva", a highly-innovative proposal for a hybrid sports car, and presented it at the Turin Motor Show.

In 1996 Fioravanti SRL exhibited two economy vehicle design projects at the Turin Motor Show: "Flair", based on the Fiat Bravo chassis, was a 2+2 coupe', aerodynamically designed (Cd = 0.18) to reduce fuel consumption and featuring air brakes.

"Nyce" was an economy vehicle for the leisure market, whose basic concept, a Fiat/Fioravanti patent, is a symmetrical door which opens both ways, reducing the number of expensive body parts to keep costs down.
