In 1946 Vittorino Viotti, in his role as President of the Carrozzieri Group of the ANFIA, tries to organize a consortium of companies for the production of a new type of car that it has developed in collaboration with Revelli: the Giardinetta.
The Lancia Aurelia B53 Giardinetta Viotti which its wooden body was quite economical, the material was easy to find and could also be mounted on the old Fiat 1100s and Lancia Aprilias still on the road. It was a huge success, and the Giardinetta formula was soon imitated by many competitors and became a trend in a few short years. This was easy because of its wooden body, which overcomes the problem of shortage of steel in the immediate post-war period. This Lancia Aurelia was build in 58 speciments, 2 using the B53 chassis. The price of the Viotti B53 Giardinetta was 2.500.000 Lire, more or less €41.000 of todays money.
