CLUB ITALIA is a sport and cultural association born in 1985 at the initiative of some passionate lovers of motoring It currently has, for social status, only 60 members, among which we remember Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, Piero Ferrari, Mauro Forghieri, designer of many victorious Ferrari, Paolo Cantarella and many other representatives of industry, finance and Italian culture , all united by a passion for automobiles.
At this purpose you may find the prototype of an high performance Alfa Romeo station wagon and the special version of the Fiat "Tipo 16 valvole" launched in 1988 in the piazzetta of Portofino.
Club Italia is not only the promoter of the image of the automobile and does not operate exclusively through Italian sporting activity or the presence of important events: for this reason has developed the study of new solutions in the creation of special versions of large production.
At this purpose you may find the prototype of an high performance Alfa Romeo station wagon and the special version of the Fiat "Tipo 16 valvole" launched in 1988 in the piazzetta of Portofino. In 1992 in collaboration with Lancia, was produced a limited edition of the Delta Integrale for members only, which, in addition to becoming a collector's item, has served as a base prototype for the successful series of special versions intended for a wider audience of passionate amateurs. Such was the success of "Lancia Delta Integrale Club Italia " that in 1995, Ducati also wanted to join the club to produce an exclusive numbered series of its model "Monster 900", creating another cult-object, the "Ducati Club Italia". In 1996 it was presented the "Fiat Barchetta Club Italia", a very interesting and elegant study developed exclusively for Club members, in collaboration with the "Centro Stile Fiat", seeking details of the sophisticated Italian motoring tradition: even this project is likely to become the basis for production of small series.
