Since the demise of the Turin show, the Geneva show's become the default high-design auto forum. All the major houses — Bertone, ItalDesign, Pininfarina, Zagato, Luigi's House of Curves, etc. — show off their latest design concepts. This year, Italian up-and-comer Fiorvanti plans to show its Thalia concept, a wagon with stadium seating and a flexible architecture allowing it to be powered by whatever is the latest alternative energy source, from hybrid to hydrogen to almond panetone-drive. Seats are higher in the rear to allow for a "second front row" in which passengers can experience being out in front. Consider it a fulfillment of the essence of Oldsmobile Cutlass Vista Cruiser. Only Italian.
