Founded by the engineers Vittorio and Umberto Fabbri, the Taurus is completely built in Italy, in the Milanese factory located in the Vigorelli area. The Taurus models are immediately distinguished by quality and elegance, distinguishing themselves thanks to highly connotative technical characteristics, such as rod brakes and curvilinear pedals characterized by the typical six blocks, considered a distinctive sign of the most luxurious and avant-garde models for the time. . The 40s and 50s decreed the definitive success of the Taurus, whose creations assert themselves for elegance, essentiality and resistance. In 1945, the new store in Via Maiocchi was added to the first historic shop in Milan, located in Piazza della Repubblica. Taurus becomes synonymous with travel luxury.
