I've been obsessed with cars for as long as I can remember, and I started drawing them the very moment I could hold a pencil in my hand.
Being born in the 1980s Turin, it wasn't long before I realized there were people actually drawing cars for a living: I remember I had a Giugiaro Design school diary, sometime in the late 80s, and every month there was a glossy picture of some of his concept cars. From then on, my path was set: I was going to be a "car designer", come hell or high water, and have now been living the dream for about ten years.
Roadster Life is intended to be a space dedicated to the "Gentleman Petrolhead", a place dedicated to automobile culture.
Why Roadster Life?
For those of you curious enough to wonder where the name of my website comes from, here's your answer...
I've never been a great fan of "supercars", or "GTis"... My favorite form of motoring has always been the classic two-seater roadster: in my view, it's the most engaging, pure, and romantic way to travel.
Just one carefully chosen passenger, little luggage because life isn't about possessions, the open road...
All this romanticism, this escapism that I saw on period Triumph, MG, or AlfaRomeo brochures led me to buy my first ragtop in 2007: a 1976 Triumph Spitfire, looking great in British Racing Green with tan interior.
After that, in 2008 came a '97 Mazda MX-5, which got me hooked on Mazda's little roadsters!
In the end, it's all about the road less traveled, the one with more curves, the one with a story to tell...
