Giorgio Gnesda

Giorgio Gnesda Design began in 1985 and offers many competences, and its activities focus on design, conception and production of unique one-off cars. Elegance, Purity and Innovation are the values that have always characterized Giorgio Gnesda Design's mission. Designing an object means finding a new image which may be used to express the needs and tastes of the actual time. This is the reason because we are always coming up to design again for the everyday objects.
The involvement in the design field was born with a profund love of design. From the time Giorgio Gnesda was a small child, this desire was intensified by a love of automobiles. Most of all, he admired the Lamborghinis, and when he finally met the founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini, they became fast-friends. He still remembers, during the meetings on his estate in Panicarola, which is in the region of Umbria and on the shores of lake Trasimeno (Italy). Over a glass of wine from his vineyard "Sangue di Miura", they spoke about automobiles and engines. It was a thrilling experience and at that moment they developped some very interesting concepts of future works.


The studios, located in Modena Motor Valley, are able to handle small, medium and large projects involving Super Cars, Hyper Cars and One-Off Cars. We are able to create and manage  appropriate "ad hoc teams" according to the specifications of the individual projects. They employ the various professionals that only the Modena region can offer.

Where Tintorera's logo comes out from? Well, I remember, during a dinner with Ferruccio Lamborghini in the eighties, I asked him: 'how do you choiced the bull for your factories?' He answered me so: 'well, I spent a lot of time to find the right symbol for my tractors. At first, with tractors, I used simply FLC as Ferruccio Lamborghini Cento, but very soon, I understood I must find a symbol that the people might remember. So, I tasked a designer of my town to find a symbol to use with the brand. But, nothing interesting at all! A day, in the morning, reading the local newspaper, and at the end, my eyes saw my zodiac sign in the oroscope page! I thought, I am under the bull! The bull conjures up power and grit! I got a look on that bull for few minutes, but I had understood that the bull it would had been the logo of my brand.' So, then, he made realize the well known bull which continue to be stronger than ever. In this fantastic adventure, remembering the story that Ferruccio told me many years ago, I got a look at my zodiac sign also! I am under the pisces sign, and I admired the sharks always for their shape, their powerful beauty and their efficiency! A perfect machine of the oceans as the perfect brand ambassador of cars which must have the same qualities. Tintorera is the name of the tiger shark, used by some Spanish-speaking peoples in Latin America. Why Modena Heritage? I am very proud to say that In owr team there are great people and friends, that have made history in the modenese automobile, working for the most famous brands, well known for their top cars around the world. Modena is a special place in the world, where everything speaks about sportcars, where unique specialists built unique cars and where everyday impossible things are made! This is Modena and much more!
