Luigi Brandoli performance of Lancia Marino F1 at Turin University of Architecture - Parco del Valentino.
To interpret the ideas that guide the creation of “Lancia Marino F1” and “Barchetta Sport” we wish to highlight the technical expertise of Marino Brandoli, known in the automotive world simply as "MARINO".
Marino Brandoli was born in Modena (Italy) in 1908 and as a child was attracted to the world of engines , the speed and the mystery of mechanics. The passion is such that at the age of 14 years he attended a course (in Bologna) to obtain a license for steam boilers to enable him to operate in the locomotive industry. He spent much of is time at railway stations and in the countryside where the trains passed at full speed; the drivers took care of their "beasts" the engineers used to bet from station to station their best time. Marino obtained the driver's license, to operate the modern combine harvester which Marino’s family had purchased from the so distant United States.
