Giuseppe Stola 1922 - 2002Giuseppe Stola 1922 - 2002On 10 January 2002, following an illness, Giuseppe Stola died.
50 years of work, 28 of which were leading the SEV foundry.
Those who knew him remember an extraordinary and tireless commitment to his dangerous and laborious work.
Always attentive to his family, he shared his passion for sailing and traveling around the world with his wife Nena and his two sons Margherita and Massimo, especially from 1992, when his well-deserved retirement began.


EARLY 2002

01Maserati MC12 in production since 2004In early 2002 came a prestigious project from Ferrari s.p.a. style director Frank Stephenson.
The request was for the development of modelling and engineering of "only the interior", excluding seats, for the future Maserati MC12, whose chassis derived mostly from the Ferrari Enzo.
The project aimed for production of only 50 units, and therefore technical and investment must be compatible with the customer's demand for such an extraordinarily low number.
The engineering and modeling department of STOLA s.p.a. worked directly and in total harmony with Frank Stephenson, who followed the work alone.
Giuseppe Di Nunno was the project leader chosen by Stola, he would develop both project and model.
Maserati was responsible for production of these 50 interiors.

In February 2002 STOLA s.p.a.received an order from the Hyundai-Kia European style center to create a concept, with the goal of delivery for the next Paris show.
A particularly welcome project because of the designers who would follow the work in Italy, former Mercedes stylists Peter Arcadipane and Michael Think.

Also for workload reasons, a mixed team of Stola s.p.a.-F & S modelers is organized to work together at the Signori Secoli factory for the construction of the model, molds, carbon parts and their complete assembly.
With the tested organizational scheme, the works are supervised by Vittorio Della Rocca and Lucio Giarolo.
The painting and final assembly will be done in Stola s.p.a. with the usual mixed team of technicians.
