ITALA mod. 35/45 HP

(Italia 1909)

Christened Palombella (little dove), this luxurious vehicle with its landaulet body by Italy’s leading coachbuilder Cesare Sala of Milan, was made for Queen Margaret of Savoy. The chassis is that of the 1907 “Pekin to Paris” Itala, plus a few modifications, such as the two separate brake pedals. Note the eagle-shaped silver door handles and foldaway step ladder.
