Everything here is fabricated with respect to the original part, assembly, and technique. Even if the staff uses, when exceptional precision is needed, the most advanced methods and tools, preference is given to traditional craft skills. The men who work here more strongly resemble artisans than mechanics. It is the attention to details and the direct experience that make this place different from a common restoration garage.

When an American is dropped into a foreign country, there are only so many things he can do to ensure his survival.

Dear Garage, I can still remember when we first met. I was immediately taken with your friendly demeanor and oil smell. We hit it off immediately, and you seemed like the answer to all my prayers.

The space demands a certain caliber of machine to be worthy of being sheltered in this shrine. On the day I visited the garage, four very special Alfa Romeos proudly occupied the space: a Giulietta SZ, a Giulia TZ, a Duetto, and the extremely rare, lust-worthy Tipo 33 Stradale.
