In 2005 the same design was used for a Ferrari 575 based car: Castagna Aria.

By looking at the pictures, I'm afraid I must conclude that this is not a street legal coachuild. As far as I can see it is 'only' a concept car. No windscreen wipers, no working lights, etc.
The 575 based example is a 3D rendering. Has anybody ever seen any proof of a road going example?

From Castagna website (http://www.castagnamilano.com/en/Atelier/one-off/index.html):
"Ben posizionate al centro degli stand, viste al Salone dell'Automobile sembrano tutte uguali ma al termine della manifestazione quasi tutte verranno messe in deposito per poi essere dimenticate.
Le nostre creazioni invece no.
Noi costruiamo fuoriserie non prototipi, vetture che non somigliano ad "automobili del futuro" ma pezzi unici omologati, targabili, affidabili, capaci di viaggiare in ogni condizione e luogo.
Sarà banale per i più, ma trasformare un sogno in un'auto sicura e dotata di documenti, esige un know-how tecnico specifico che in tanti ci invidiano.
Volete personalizzare anche la targa?"


"Well positioned at the centre of the display area, they all look alike in the Show Room, but once the event is over almost all of them will be stored away in warehouses and forgotten.
Not our creations, however.
We produce custom-built “fuoriserie”, not prototypes. We build cars that have nothing in common with “cars of the future”, but which, rather, are unique pieces that come with official authorisation approved, that can be legally registered, that are reliable and capable of travelling in all road conditions and in any location.
If will be of little importance to most people, but transforming a dream into a safe and properly registered car requires the specific technical know-how for which we are envied by many in the car design industry.
By the way, would you like your number plate personalised? "

Obviously the red Rossellini cannot be street-legal, but maybe it's a mock-up for a real car (if it was really built...).
I don't know if Aria was ever built...
