The Fiat Cinquecento...Italian style at its best

Fiat 500.

Fiat 500.

This week the Fiat 500 celebrated its 60th anniversary. Although it has undergone quite a few upgrades since the first ones were released in 1957, the original will forever be one of the most iconic symbols of Italian style.

It was originally manufactured as a small city car and known as the "people's car". It was intended to be a cheap and practical little town car, a way for the average person to have their own transportation. Well, that marketing clearly worked because 500s can be found in every corner of Italy to this day!

I personally love this car and, along with the Vespa, it is one of the things that in my mind will forever be tied to my Italian childhood.

Happy Birthday Cinquecento!

Arrivederci,

Teresa
