Marcello Alessio, after some years at the Locati&Torretta workshop, the most famous horse-coaches builder of Turin in that period, opened his own workshop and built his first Mail-coach exhibited at the Turin Salòn in 1898.
The last two years of the XIX century were very important for Turin: Fiat and many others producers opened their factories and the motor car wasn't a "strange machinery" anymore. Alessio coached some motor tricycles for the courageous customers and in 1899 a small series for the Welleyes of Ceirano.
In 1900, at the first italian motor show, Alessio was considered the most elegant coachbuilder of the show and the high society queued up to order a coach by Alessio and to drink a glass of Vermouth at 5:00 PM with him. In 1906 Alessio became a rich man, but while he was thinking to close the workshop and to build a plant, the crisis arrived. Unfortunately Alessio wasn't a real business man, the critical situation made him confused, tired and discouraged. So he retired in 1912 and he putted in charge his son Giovanni. Giovanni organized very well the business in a new plant and when the WWI arrived he earned also the Royal Army orders. In 1922, during a prosperous period for the company, the Itala commissioned to Alessio many series of coaches, and Giovanni became also a SPA dealer. When the 1929 financial crisis arrived even in Italy, Giovanni Alessio settled off the company forever.
