If you were just strolling down this tiny street in Milan’s industrialized outskirts, you wouldn't even notice it because it blends so easily with the old factories and buildings. If you were looking for indications along the road, just like you find in Arese, you would be lost somewhere, on some road, in the middle of nowhere, disoriented by the Milanese fog.

I had been searching for the kind of car that when I walk away from it and look back, I'd smile (and I still do that every time).
