Flavio Manzoni, Walter de’ Silva’s right hand man and current director of creative design at Volkswagen Group, is moving back to his home country to take up the post of design at Ferrari. He will be responsible for Ferrari style and will report directly to the managing director, Amedeo Felisa.
The news is unofficial and it’s unknown where current Ferrari design director Donato Coco will go, though Alfa Romeo has been rumoured as a possibility. Manzoni is set to take up his role from January 1st next year, and his first job will be to create a true Ferrari style centre and create a new brand identity, relying less on the image of Pininfarina.
