Virgilio Conrero was born in Turin, Italy in 1918. After serving in the Regia Aeronautica as an aircraft mechanic in World War II, he established Autotecnica Conrero in 1951, and successfully tuned Alfa Romeo cars until 1969. At the same time, he tuned Lancia Aurelia models as well. There were also a very small number of cars built in the 1950s as Conrero-Alfas. After his involvement with Alfas ended, he did tuning on Opels. The firm is presently named Studio Futuro and located in Lugo. The main client is Lotus. The company offers sporting accessories for cars as well (see also Triumph Conrero). Conrero died in 1990.
