I wish more associations were as open as ANFIA. It allows us to peer into the past and see how things were. From it we see the Italian car industry rising from the ashes of WWII. It's surprising how quickly things picked up from the wreckage wrought on Europe not many years earlier.
Fiat of course was the mainstay of the automotive industrial revival, accounting for 84% of the volume for this ten year period. Lancia started as the second brand but was passed by Alfa Romeo through the decade. Autobianchi was part owned by Fiat and made slightly pricier cars than the equivalent Fiat model. Innocenti just started in 1960 making BMC vehicles under licence.
Ferrari and Maserati were of a similar size and the latter just edged ahead by 1960. Iso made the Isetta Bubble Car although the figures her don't quite add up to me.
Over 2.8 million cars were made, Fiat making just over 2.5 million of them. Things were looking better as commerce got back to normal and and more people were able to consider buying a new car.
