In the 1950s, Fiat invented the "Spiaggine", small cars transformed into convertibles without doors and with essential seats, designed for seaside resorts.
Riding the wave of the economic boom, the best Italian coachbuilders dedicated themselves to the production of these cars on a Fiat 500 or 600 base, which eliminated the roof, doors and pillars, while reinforcing the floor of the car. The seats are characteristic, stripped of the padding and basted with wicker or other water-resistant textile materials, in addition to the nautical-style awnings that replace the hood.
Ghia, Boano and even Pinin Farina are dedicated to the creation of these cars that soon become elite status symbols but also original taxis for the exclusive islands of the Mediterranean, in particular those frequented by the VIPs of the time.
An iconic car, loved by celebrities and entrepreneurs, ideal for the streets of Capri thanks to its inimitable style and its small size; a car that marked an era, a symbol of the country's economic and social rebirth.
Many took the road to transform a normal Fiat 500 into a Spiaggina.
The modifications to make the Fiat 500 Jolly Ghia were very expensive, so much so that it had a list price that was practically double that of the car from which it derived and was therefore considered a car for very wealthy people.
His appearances in 1960s films shot on Capri or on the Amalfi coast were iconic, as were the woven wicker seats which contributed to increasing its charm.
