The Zero is the
first ever automotive project from industrial group Tazzari,
and the Zero will be assembled at its facility in Imola. The Group was founded
back in 1963 when Giorgio Tazzari
set up what would become an established and continually
expanding Italian manufacturing company. The company's long and
varied history has led the Tazzari family to occupy an
important place in advanced engineering, aluminium casting,
subcontracting and assembly, machining and the service sector.
During the 1970s,
thanks to Gian Luca Tazzari, son of Giorgio, the Tazzari
name reached ski slopes all over the world through the company's
design and production of high-precision ski grinding machines
and ski service-related technology. The company has always been a dedicated Italian producer in
pursuit of excellence. Now, after 45 years of growth,
investment, diversification, improvement and increasing
specialisation in the very best of technology and manufacturing,
Tazzari Holding and its affiliates are directed by Erik
and Rafael Tazzari.
