Aldo Brovarone, one of the protagonists of the Italian style. His parents started him at the state commercial and technical institute. They considered it to be a safe journey, which would have given him the opportunity to be employed in one of the Biella province textile industries. Aldo interrupted his study course, both due to a lack of interest in the subjects, and the start of World War II. This was an unscheduled event that allowed him to fully dedicate himself to express his natural artistic talent in drawing and to make a job out of his passion. He took his first steps in Argentina, hired by Piero Dusio, creator and founder Automotores Argentinos, AUTOAR, and Cisitalia in Turin.
In 1953, he was called back to Italy by Dusio and hired by Cisitalia. It was a brief experience, the company shut down the same year, due to their financial difficulties.
