Gran Turismo is dedicated to the Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 GT.
Like the protruding headlight of the car symbol of the streamline design of the ’30s, the light source in Gran Turismo is not concealed – on the contrary in reveals itself boldly, even though the brass screen plate creates a soft indirect light. The design is rather harsh as in a rationalist project from the postwar years, based on the cubic mass of marble which is sliced by the brass plate like a neoplastic composition.
Gran Turismo is a sophisticated time machine: from the revival of traditional materials to their updating to meet the contemporary-minimal taste, made of rigorous elements and iconic details.
Gran Turismo is 100% made in Italy and supports local workshops. Marble is processed in Carrara by Apuana Corporate whose purpose is to prevent the artisan know-how from dying out for good, and to get Carrara back to what it used to be, a prosperous widespread factory and not just a quarry.
