RECONNECTING THE THREADS OF THE PAST

One of the oldest Italian companies with an exceptional past in the automotive industry is coming to Padua for the first time.

Actually, this company literally contributed to the creation of this industry's history.  We are talking about the factory established by Giuseppe Allemano: here, at the end of the 19th century, the first steam rollers were used for roadwork and pressure gauges were assembled on many Italian cars, from early cars such as the Fiat 501 (the first to be produced in series with a 1919 Allemano pressure gauge) to cars dating back to the late 1950s.  Then history, as we know, took this company in a different direction as it started to focus on big industry precision tools and underwater equipment; however, the connection with cars was never forgotten. Actually, it is still an integral part of the company's identity, so much so that Allemano is coming to Auto e Moto d'Epoca 2020 with Time Measurers: a range of watches that draws its inspiration from the pressure gauges assembled on the 1919 Fiat 501.
