Post and discuss all general info about Allemano here.
You may start new topics on specific cars, projects and makes designed and/or bodied by Allemano.

Carrozzeria Allemano was an automobile coachbuilder in Turin, Italy, owned by Serafino Allemano and was established in 1928.

Allemano made various cars based on their own designs, and in some cases, externally made designs, such as those by Michelotti. Some of the earlier cars were Ferrari 166S, Alfa Romeo 2500 and Lancia Aurelia. For Fiat Allemano created three Fiats 1100 TV (designed by Michelotti, 1954), Fiat 600 (1955-1958), a few Abarths 750, Fiat 850 and Fiat 2200. For Maserati they made 21 Maserati A6G 2000/54, prototype designs for Maserati 3500 (1957), and 22 Maserati 5000 (1959-1965), many of these designed by Michelotti. There were also a Jaguar XK140, an Aston Martin DB2/4 (1953) a Panhard Dyna, as well as Renault Dauphine specials.

Carrozzeria Allemano ceased to exist in 1965.

From N. Georgano's "The Beaulieu Encyclopedia of the Automobile: Coachbuilding"

"Serafino Allemano opened a body repair shop in Turin in 1928 wich gave him a business basis for his true ambition, wich was to design cars. He has been called fashion-conscious,but that does not adequately describe his works, for he was in reality trying to advance the art, finding a germ of a trend and pushing it forwards.
By 1935 he had eliminated repair work and the Allemano factory was working full-time on the creative side. His bodies from this period were built on Fiat and Lancia chassis, for the most part. After 1945, he picked up where he had left off in 1940, refreshed with new inspiration, and reinforced by bringing his nephew, Mario, into the business. By 1950 Allemano had evolved an original and modern styling theme, which was used for sports coupés and cabriolets on Fiat 1100, Renault 4CV and Dyna-Panhard chassis. Allemano also built a number of Maserati bodies, plus the odd Ferrari.
In 1959 Allemano received a contract to design and build two prototype cars for Fuji Heavy Industries (Subaru), and in 1962 they began collaborating with ATS. Even in a busy year, however, Allemano found it difficult to make a profit, and the end came in 1965."

By 1935 he had eliminated repair work and the Allemano factory was working full-time on the creative side in a new workshop in via Rosmini 10.

After 1945, he picked up where he had left off in 1940 and moved to a new workshop in via Ala di Stura because the 1943 allied bombings, refreshed with new inspiration, and reinforced by bringing his nephew, Mario, into the business in 1946. Earlier Mario worked as chief of the manufacturing seat department at the Stabilimenti Farina. By 1950 Allemano had evolved an original and modern styling theme which was used for sports coupés and cabriolets on Fiat 1100, Renault 4CV and Dyna-Panhard chassis, thanks to the support of Giovanni Michelotti who designed all the '50s production. Allemano also built a number of Maserati bodies, plus the odd Ferrari.

My update.

The logo was created by Michelotti too.
