In Padua, there are hundreds of small treasures for collectors and exclusive furnishing opportunities: original handmade pieces, mechanical parts which are out and out designer masterpieces, singular mementos of champions and sporting feats; everything collected, curated and selected by the best Automobilia and Petroliana memorabilia specialists and inextricably linked to passion for cars and their beauty.
As a matter of fact, art and design have accompanied cars since the beginning of motorisation and in all the decades that followed. The torpedo models of the 30s had mascots, trademark radiator tops in polished metals and original shapes. Advertisements, metal signs and gadgets provided by petrol station owners saw their appeal grow long before the 50s. The mechanical art and the manual craftsmanship of body shop mechanics and auto-body repairmen "shine" even today, not only in garages or on the streets, but also as standalone masterpieces of modern furnishing.
Only Padua can offer such an overview of exclusive items and collectors' items.
We cannot wait to share our heritage with our community of trusted visitors when it will be possible to leave our homes and gather to celebrate our shared passion.
