Being a passionate fan of the old Fiat 500 car (it is my dream to buy one of these relatively soon!) while doing some research regarding the cost and repair tips for these antique classic cars I stumbled upon a young 23 year old self-taught femail mechanic called Giovanna who was recently featured on La Repubblica online edition of the famous Italian Newspaper.

Wow! What a treat to see such a young architect decide to learn on her own how to repair and restore these models from scratch!

Here (in Italian) are some of her videos explaining the genesis of her training

    This is a wonderful content. I love the classic Fiat. We are looking for a small car we can pull behind our RV for road trips across the USA. They are producing the new Fiat in Detroit Michigan – just isn’t the same as this fun car.

    Thank you for sharing!
