History[edit]

The Borgo San Paolo Plant was first built in Turin, Italy, on what is now known as Via Lancia (or Lancia Street), in 1911. The early plant was divided as separate machine tool shop, assembly, and engine departments, and was unable to achieve competitively high levels of production (production grew from 131 vehicles in 1908 to just 258 in 1910).[1]

Between 1932 and 1934, the plant added new subdivisions, including the 66,000 square-meter Via Monginevro. However, the plant was heavily bombarded during World War II.[2]

Lancia was acquired by Fiat in 1969, leading to the progressive dismantling of the Borgo San Paolo Plant.[3]
