The New Adventures of Italians in Russia

It’s been a long time since we heard the name. Italian carmaker Fiat has released its redesigned, updated model, called simply FIAT 500 (in Italian, cinquecento). At the end of the summer, artist Andrei Bartenev organized a party at the Stikheyevo Mansion expressly to introduce Moscow society to the Cinquecento. Now this small, ergonomic model is available for purchase in Russia. From Moscow’s car showrooms to its traffic-clogged strade, the Italians are back!
