This book narrates the history of the Fiat 500 and the models that came before and after it.

A true icon of Italian lifestyle, the 500 was actually supposed to be a niche product, but in just few years, its elegance and affordability made it one of the best selling cars, with 4 million units manufactured and sold in a 20 year lifespan. This volume recounts the story of this Italian symbol from the early models, through the iconic 1957 Nuova 500, up to the current version.
