Enjoy this exclusive tour of the new Pininfarina exhibit, led by the Petersen Archivist, Laura Fisher. During the tour, Laura will also take you through our Hollywood Dream Machines exhibit that covers vehicles of science fiction and fantasy.

As the popularity of automobiles rose during the early twentieth century, a large number of horse-drawn carriage makers began to apply their talents to the construction of self-propelled vehicles. Many early coachbuilders found it difficult to adapt and were forced out of business. Those that survived (and many that entered the business later) often created vehicles that embodied unusual, extreme, and unconventional styling themes. One of the foremost among them was Battista Farina.

Battista Farina, better known by his Italian nickname “Pinin,” was first exposed to the art of coachbuilding in his brother’s shop, Stabilimenti Farina. He went on to establish his own firm, Carrozzeria Pinin Farina, during the 1920s, creating some of the most admired coachwork of the era on chassis ranging from the prestigious Rolls-Royce to the workaday Fiat. The design house’s best known early achievement was the 1947 Cisitalia, which was acclaimed by critics as a work of art and which signaled a new direction in automotive styling.

Hollywood Dream Machines: Vehicles of Science Fiction and Fantasy explores cult classic films and stories that have envisioned fantastic futuristic worlds, technologies, characters, and cars. Through props, design drawings, and physical vehicle models, this exhibit brings pop culture’s visions of dystopian, utopian, and science fiction worlds to life.
