Not to be confused with Bertone (disambiguation).

Flaminio Bertoni (Masnago, Italy, 10 January 1903 - Paris, France, 7 February 1964) was an automobile designer from the years preceding World War II until his death in 1964. Before his work in industrial design, Bertoni was a sculptor.[1]

Working at Citroën for decades, Bertoni designed the Traction Avant (1934), 2CV, the H van, the DS, [2] and the Ami 6. The DS was often exhibited at industrial design showcases, such as the 1957 Milan Triennale Exposition.

The province of Varese dedicated a museum to his memory.[3][4] It opened in May 2007.
