MOTORING HERITAGE OF CANAVESE:
The Canavese has a motoring heritage that is unparalleled. Here are born bicycles, motorcycles and cars also important internationally. In the 30’ family Bertot, in Forno Canavese, producing the SAETTA motorcycle, instead the G.B. Venturino built folding bikes with brakes wand for military “Bersaglieri”. The brothers Bertoldo instead had begun production of a car, the “TRE SPADE”, with sheet steel frame and robust printed. With the arrival of the first World War, the production had to stop to produce arsenal.
The TEMPERINO, however, was the first small car in automotive history is built by Italian brothers Temperino of Borgiallo. Of small size, it had excellent performance in climbing. Hoods, fenders and bulkheads were printed and standardized so as to allow the fitting of each element in the right place. The engine, air-cooled, is the same which is still mounted on the Fiat 500.
