  • Description

    MORE THAN 500 EXHIBITORS FROM 13 NATIONS ARE TAKING PART IN THE ITALIAN MOTOR SHOW WHICH OPENED IN TURIN TODAY (SATURDAY). ITALY'S TRADE & INDUSTRY MINISTER, SIGNOR GIUSUPPE MEDICI OPENED THIS 46TH SHOW. HE SAID IT WAS TAKING PLACE AT A "PARTICULARLY DIFFICULT MOMENT" FOR ITALY'S MOTOR INDUSTRY. PRODUCTION OF INDUSTRIAL VEHICLE HAS RECENTLY SLOWED DOWN, STRONGLY AFFECTING WORKING HOURS AND, IN THE LONG RUN, THE ECONOMY.

    AMONG THE NEW MODELS EXHIBITED ARE THE FORD ANGLIA "TORINO" DESTINED FOR THE ITALIAN MARKET; THE BERLIN FIAT ABARTH 1600 CC CAPABLE OF REACHING SPEEDS UP TO 220 KILOMETRES AN HOUR (136 MPH); A MORE POWERFUL FIAT 1500; AND THE LITTLE DIANA OF MV AUGUSTA DESIGNED FOR ANGLERS AND HUNTERS. IN GENERAL, THE TURIN SHOW REPEATS WHAT HAS BEEN SEEN IN OTHER EUROPEAN MOTOR SHOWS THIS AUTUMN.

    THE NEED TO CUT BACK EVEN FURTHER WORKING HOURS IN THE MOTOR INDUSTRY, AND IN THE VAST RANGE OF INDUSTRIES WHICH ARE ITS SUPPLIERS, IS HANGING OVER THE HEADS OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES THROUGHOUT NORTHERN ITALY. FOR EXAMPLE, A MAJOR FIRM OF COMPONENTS, BORLETTI'S, IS CLOSING DOWN FOR 20 DAYS DURING THE COURSE OF THE NEXT TWO MONTHS.

    EXHIBITORS TAKING PART IN THE TURIN SHOW COME FROM: AUSTRIA; BELGIUM; CZECHOSLOVAKIA; FRANCE; GERMANY; GREAT BRITAIN; HOLLAND; ISRAEL; ITALY; JAPAN; SWEDEN; SWITZERLAND AND UNITED STATES.
