The lines were added by the company's design chief when one day passing under the factory, he noticed the sky at the backdrop of the huge FIAT letters on the top of the building.
The lines added are the spaces he saw in the company's name over the building and decided to keep it.
Fiat was founded in Turin on July 12, 1899.

The first plant, inaugurated in 1900 at Corso Dante, had 235 employees and produced 24 automobiles.
