His biography, reads like a novel: loss; love; success; war; and death. Born on Jan. 10, 1903, in northern Italy, Flaminio Bertoni discovered car design by accident. After his father’s death in 1918, Bertoni was forced to leave technical school to earn a living and support his family. Already a skilled draftsman, he found a job in the planning department at Carrozzeria Macchi, a local body maker. In his spare time, Bertoni studied sculpture and even opened his own art shop.
