Nothing was left to chance, the restyling concerned both the interiors and the exteriors of the Fiat, icon for excellence. A very important project, in fact, over the last two years the R&D Ritrama department worked side by side with the marketing department, the design centre and the engineering and production departments of Fiat to define the current proposals of body customization.

The Ritrama car wrapping films were certified according to the Fiat specifications attesting the quality and the conformity of the materials applied on their cars. A fundamental point showing that Ritrama is to be considered the leading independent supplier of self-adhesive material and one of the worldwide leaders.

The partnership with Fiat went further. Ritrama developed a five-weeks training project on the application processes for the Fiat staff involved in the project.
