Engineer Paolo Stanzani, former Technical Director at Automobili Lamborghini, passed away on January 18, 2017. Valentino Balboni remembers him with these words:
“I have had the great privilege to know and work with Paolo Stanzani from the very beginning of my career at Automobili Lamborghini.
His figure was charismatic and his expressions and decisions facing difficult and unexpected situations are unforgettable.
Alongside with Ferruccio Lamborghini, Stanzani gave me the chance to grow and learn from the mythical test driver Bob Wallace; it is only thanks to his trust that I managed to break into the Automobili Lamborghini world and learn a job that made me worldwide recognized.
I’ll keep following his teachings with respect and devotion for the myth he and his collaborators managed to create. He truly was a specimen of life.
Thank you, Engineer Stanzani, we will always remember you."
