Scioneri Founded in 1943 by Antonio Scioneri at Savigliano near Cuneo, they were first interested only in repairing damaged cars (apart from the household appliance side of the business). With the postwar car market booming they gradually began 'personalising' the cars produced by the major manufacturers, starting with two-tone paintwork and such like. In 1950 they produced their first body and went on to become well known, especially for a four door Fiat 600 of which they built about 15000.

Their spiders and coupés based on the 600 and 1100 proved very popular during the 1950s and in 1960 they moved to a new factory in another part of Savigliano. Other cars which emerged included a Fiat 1500 based coupé and a few Alfa Romeo variants whilst later most of the mainstream Fiats were used in some form or another.

As with most of the smaller coachbuilders, the ever increasingly competitive market saw them finding a niche, in the case of Scioneri this being personalising the mass produced cars with special interiors and trim. Thus they produced the Uno, Tipo and Panda (to name but a few) with handstiched leather and wood interiors, whilst the metalwork and mechanical side (and thus homologation) was left unchanged.
