Carlo Palazzani was born in Brescia on July 2nd, 1980.
Having developed from a young age a passion for drawing as well as a fondness for cars, he matured during his high school years the project of dedicating himself to design and sculpture. He started his secondary-level education at the Brescia Academy of Fine Arts before transferring after one year to Milan to study industrial design, soon realizing that his true interest lied in a specialization in car design.
