Alessandro Artese

Dr. Artese, a Bolognese expert of commercial law and car enthusiast, was in 1978 appointed by the Bolognese court to manage Automobili Lamborghini. He realized the importance of the factory, and searched for potential buyers. Despite his and his team's efforts, no-one was able to buy the factory, and on 28th February 1980, the factory was officially put out of business. Artese offered the factory to Ferruccio Lamborghini for a symbolic price, but Lamborghini refused.
